I'm proud to join the first cohort of twenty-eight World Theatre Map Ambassadors from twenty-four countries to direct outreach, community organizing, and feedback gathering for HowlRound's new World Theatre Map. I look forward to working closely with this group over the coming years, and to contributing from France and beyond.
I'm very much looking forward to being back at OuiShare Fest Paris, which gathers 1500 visionaries, entrepreneurs and movement builders to explore how digital technologies and a more collaborative culture can address the great challenges of our time. This time I'll be offering a 4-hour Public Speaking Master Class on July 6th, 9am-1pm.
After being away for almost a year and a half, I can't wait to be back in the Big Apple to work on two new shows by Kaimera Productions. On May 23rd & 24th we will be presenting our first workshop of the Living Altar project at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center in Queens. We were also commissioned by the 2017 Harlem Arts Festival to create a new iteration of the SPACES initiative. SPACES: Harlem will take place at Mount Morris Ascension Presbyterian Church on June 24th & 25th. Learn more about the Living Altar workshop HERE and about the SPACES: Harlem piece HERE.
I had the pleasure of working with Animations Sans Fronteres at the Gobelins L'École de L'Image. The 4-day Public Speaking & Pitching intensive prepared sixteen young animation professionals to pitch their work to a panel of producers and animation professinoals. The participants, hailing from all over Europe, made tremendous progress in their English-language pitches of their truly innovative and beautiful work in animation, VR, and gaming.

I am very much looking forward to returning to Istanbul, this time to teach a 2-day Immersive Theatre & Viewpoints Intensive for Actors and Interdisciplinary Artists at the Craft Theatre in Kadıköy.
