Courtney J. Boddie’s podcast series #KeepMakingArt

I was recently interviewed by the delightful Courtney J. Boddie for her podcast, Keep Making Art. Listen in and hear me talk about writing, theater for the very young and interconnectedness!

Lauren, Asha and audience explore the life of the garden in 1609.

The UP CLOSE Festival was a community-lifting success. As lead artist for Spellbound Theater, I was at the helm of a devised piece called SANCTUARY/GARDEN that was a deep dig into the history of St. Luke’s in the Fields magical garden. A sensory-based land acknowledgment with roots in community and history of the West Village before it was the West Village. There were oyster shells, shadow puppets and lots and lots of beautiful fabric.

Ben, Lauren, and Asha sit on a woven rug, building an island out of oyster shells.

Trusty Sidekick’s Scurry at Lincoln Center Education! I helped create a show about empathy, friendship and loss for kids ages 2+. I played a squirrel, who was also a plumber.
