Regardless of the period or style, I enable actors to transform their environment, inhabiting and creating their worlds as they tell a story or present a landscape of impressions.
Thorough text work and dramaturgical research are important parts of my process. I will also use character- and style-driven improvisations in my process, as well as games of different kinds to help orient a cast toward the playing style of a production.
Every character, and every actor, is of equal importance to me. This is an aesthetic and an ethical principle.
Respectful of the past, living for the present, I try to be as honest and direct as possible in my process and in the work itself.
