My artistic focus is on the relationships of people - with themselves and each other.
I am most curious about what makes people tick; what bonds them to others, what releases them. I strive to explore this in the work that I direct, hence most of my work stemming from subject matter yet to have a voice or that is just emerging to a more comprehensive and dynamic understanding. My curiosity in the raw and unpleasantly beautiful human condition is apparent in the types of plays that attract me.
I tell complex, often troubling, always honest stories. With humor.
I have always been drawn to universally resonating, theme- and character-driven plays; often with a political slant, often set in a familial scenario. Whether that is politics of the body, politics of man(kind), or even politics of language. I have a preference for minimalistic yet innovative sets that incorporate the use of negative space, and I love silence (silence as the absence of sound and the absence of movement). It is a blend of these elements that I use to sculpt the rhythm of storytelling. These characteristics, my passion for exploration, and drive to push the boundaries of what is considered the norm are ever-present in my work and in how I engage with my collaborators in the room.
