Updating the Website

Hi folks, 

I am currently in the process of updating this website.  I am adding videos, reorganizing content, and re-naming categories.  Please let me know if you are looking for something that you are unable to find.  I will be happy to find it for you.

I have less than 2 semesters of graduate school left to complete.  It's been an incredible process with lovely people.  I am very aware of my good fortune.

I am currently seeking opportunities as a director, teacher, performer, and creative collaborator.  I am available to begin work in June, 2016.

Cheers,

June in Orlando - Workshops, friends, and incredible artists

I'm in Orlando for the month of June.  Florida is an incredible state, and Orlando is a lovely city.

This month I had the great fortune to revisit Full Sail University as an instructor for the Professional Communication and Presentation class.  I taught two sections of incredible artists and entertainment business students - working with them on their personal pitch to future employers and collaborators.  These students developed some incredible presentations!

Abundant Summer Plans

I've been having a wonderful experience at Towson University this semester.  Quick update - finished an "End-of-Year" presentation in early April.  I will be posting video and pictures of that project soon.  I've been writing a ton of short scripts for David White's text construction class.  I've been directing staged readings, coaching movement and puppetry for mainstage shows, and leading Viewpoints workshops.  It's been busy!

 

A Reflection on Decadence

Hello wonderful world!

Towson University has an incredibly decadent MFA program, directed specifically for theatre artists interested in being generative artists.  Traditionally actors and directors are taught to be interpretive artists.  This program is one of the first in a shifting paradigm.  

"The Receptionist" with Empty Spaces Theatre

We just had our first read with the cast of "The Receptionist."  It is being produced by Empty Spaces Theatre.  Performances will be July 18 and 19.  Facilitated talkbacks will be held at each performance.  I am playing Beverly - the receptionist.  Take a look at the myth of Narcissus and Echo before you see the show.  Lt me know if you see the connection!  http://www.echo.me.uk/legend.htm

TeachLivE is doing quite well!

Hi Folks,

 

As you know, I am an interactor, or as we like to call ourselves, interactive artist, for TeachLivE.  The program is having a conference this month.  It is also winning all sorts of awards within the Simulation and Education fields.  Check it out!

A Week of Workshops!

Happy Spring Break!

This week I had the amazing opportunity to present workshops for all the basic skills I'm passionate about!  I led a public speaking workshop and an object puppetry workshop for Full Sail University instuctors, and I led a Viewpoints workshop with the cast of Craigslust (one of the fantastic shows available at this years Orlando Fringe Festival).  

New Piece in development!

Hi Folks!

I have a new piece in development!  It is a 5 minute puppetry.movement short.  I'm pretty excited about it. :-)

Piece written and directed by Rebekah Lane
Performed by Rebelah lane, Chris Prueitt, and Mary Beth Spurlock

Here were the parameters for the piece:

Promt: If the world were to end tomorrow, what would you do today?

Specs:  Use at least one object, one piece of music, and up to 3 performers.

The puppet is masking tape and newspaper.  He has a wooden dowel in his head.
