Some of you reading this blog have been with me for the entire journey, and those of you who have will know that TE’A and Intersections have collaborated in one way... more...Filters: Arts & Humanities
- BlogTue, 28 Jul 2015The Uniform Justice Experience, From the Tour to...
Can theatre uncover the surface of police-community conflict? Absolutely. Because writing a play is something like opting to write a letter instead of engaging in an emotionally charged argument with someone you’re in conflict with. The kind of argument where you worry that the words won’t come out right, if at all. If only... more...Filters: Arts & Humanities

Have you seen the current poster for Uniform Justice? Or Visited the Uniform Justice Spring Tour page on the Intersections website? Or seen or heard any other press material?

When Vieve recently approached me about sharing a bit of my experience regarding Insight theory and my life, my initial reaction was “where do I even begin?

In a previous blog, I wrote about some of the artistic elements we are employing in the creation of There's Something About America, including music and movement.

- BlogMon, 9 Mar 2015Build-A-Banquet
I found my calling. When the parable of The Bamboo Jacket Banquet sprang to life in my mind, I found my calling! The king invites everyone to dine at the castle. His only request is that you wear a bamboo jacket. Everyone comes, the peasants, the nobleman and the wise. They put on their bamboo jackets as they enter to discover they... more...Filters: Arts & Humanities

Over the past several months I have been engaged in a bi-weekly podcast focusing on art and its place in social/ cultural change.
