Projects in Progress

Currently, I am developing a number of projects that probe theater’s possibilities as a social practice: a biographical reimagining of Brecht’s Mother Courage as a site of the destruction of the American “home”; an existential exploration and racial deconstruction of our “Golden Age” of television; a devised investigation of the five pages in the Talmud that tackle the “Messiah”; and a song-cycle about contemporary Black + Jewish relations. I am also in the midst of two long-term book projects: the first is a monograph about the intersections of cultural policy and contemporary performance in Berlin after the end of the Cold War; the second is an edited collection titled Postdramatic Theatre and Form, which examines the stakes of continuing to use “postdramatic” as a lens for studying contemporary performance.
