2018

I performed Small Mouth Sounds nearly 200 times, by far my longest run to date.  Returning to New York after seven months on the road, I launched into two projects with The Assembly: appearing in Seagullmachine (a mashup of classic plays by Anton Chekhov and Heiner Muller) and developing Bartleby in the Castle (an original musical freely inspired by works by Herman Melville and Franz Kafka).

The Tank

Mounted January 14-20, 2018, while I was in LA with Small Mouth Sounds, Holidays In/Coyote featured video characters who presided godlike over a Holidome in Topeka, Kansas. As The Pool, I was chill, wise and often stoned, dreaming hazily of "the water beneath the water".

Directed by Jess Chayes, the film was shot and edited by video designer David Pym.
