I am happy and honored to announce that I have been awarded the 2015 TCG Fox Foundation Actor Fellowship in Distinguished Achievement in partnership with Bootleg Theater.

This grant will allow me to develop The Second Woman, an interdisciplinary performance that draws from John Cassavetes’ film Opening Night, and Henry Rider Haggard’s novel She. Both share themes of the terrors of aging and the mysteries of the feminine. Our project is scheduled to premiere at Bootleg in Los Angeles in the Fall of 2016. Paula Rebelo and I will perform the piece with original music by Juli Crockett, video by Adam Flemming, choreography by Fernando Belo, video cinematography by John Hawk, and directed by Zoe Aja Moore. This dynamic creative team have come together to create a soul stirring experience, a ritual for transformation inspired by these two great works. Intensive workshops will be conducted at Bootleg and made available free of charge to High School students from the Downtown Los Angeles area.
