I operate under the belief that Theatre is wholly immediate. Everyone involved, the audience and theatre makers, arrives at the space bringing themselves and everything in the worlds around them. The act of performance isn't historical or predictive, it's completely present. Because of this I have a love for older forgotten, less produced plays. Often they contain thematic through lines to the contemporary that are obscured by language, setting, and style. A lot of my personal work is towards exploring these older texts and evaluating how they might still have a place on the contemporary stage. By updating these older works, adapting and reevaluating them, we can be sure that we take the canon with us, not just leave it behind.
