The Bruise is tonight! 8pm at Idlewild bar: 24 St. Nicholas Ave, Bushwick Brooklyn. Come get LIT with literary madness, featuring pro storytellers, poets and music. The weekend isn’t over yet and the show is free as always! Plus, starting next month The Bruise and Idlewild bar will be giving 10 percent of bar sales to a pro-women organization fighting against domestic and sexual assault and abortion restrictions/criminalization. So you’ll also be supporting a good cause. Drink more guilt-free.
From 2012, new 'About' coming soon. In the meantime, please enjoy this nostalgia from my life five years ago:
I am an artist, writer, researcher, filmmaker, photographer, playwright, actor, and director in Ridgewood, Queens. I know that might seem like a lot of things to be so I should say I experiment in a variety of disciplines and mediums; concepts and absurdities. I studied in The Studio for Interrelated Media at Massachusetts College of Art. I moved to the area in June 2010 after graduating.
Since moving to NYC I've been feeling pulled back to my first loves: writing and theater; and the surreal, emotional, and abstract. I am also very involved with radical politics and I'm particularly interested in blending internal and external structures. I wrote a semi-surreal one act play called "The Rootless: A Play About America" last year which divulged the madness of capitalism and was performed at The Producer's Club with Love Creek Productions. I recently wrote another one act play called "The Thousand Lives of a Nomad" which is a story about the task, escape, and intrigue of continually making new lives in different places. The story is told through the lens of a 33 year-old woman originally from Finland and now residing in Brooklyn. It's staged to be a "live animation" of sorts and, personally I think it's both funny and thoughtful.
On-going projects include a constant evolving series of smoke drawings, a documentary about the business behind social media and Facebook; hope of rekindling my love affair with large format photography, and a perpetual mid-life crisis...
