grey gone

various locaations (incl. michael howard studios & siti co. in nyc)

january, 2009 - present

a woman enters the space, a member of the audience in need of help.  in 30 min. real time she must move from first through seventh chakra, revealing the death of her husband, her affair, and the disappearance of her eldest son grey, ultimately reaching a state of clarity and catharsis. 

collaborative performance piece based on fay simpson’s recently published THE LUCID BODY: A GUIDE FOR THE PHYSICAL ACTOR.  the first in a series of character portraits based on the chakras, created to reveal the intricacies of the lucid body technique.  developed while in residency at the university of the south in sewanee, TN, with support from the tennesse williams fellowship.
