I am proud to present my latest project: theStations, www.thestationsproject.com.
For years, theater has brought us together using characters and plot to unmask how we think and feel about our own lives. But the form needs to evolve with its audience. theStations is an experiment, an electronic experience of the play Cowboy Mouth, written by Sam Shepard and Patti Smith in 1971.
The play is about a girl who thinks rock ‘n roll is the new way to connect and console people like religion once had. So she kidnaps a guy to make him into a rock ‘n roll savior, but then realizes it is she who must realize her own dream.
the Stations borrows the ritual of The Stations of the Cross, 14 artistic depictions of Jesus’ journey to crucifixion, for reflection on each part of the play. A station is posted monthly, using original imagery, music, and prayer and is accessible on any device at any time.
We are halfway through shooting Desert Palm Productions of The Night Girl, a short film based on the feature length Night Girl by Greg Anderson. The story is about a young woman, Thena, coming into herself as an artist after denying/avoiding her true calling because of a troubled relationship with her father. I star as Thena; Paul Gunn, as Mitchell; directed by Greg Anderson; produced by Don Laikowski; and shot by DP Dan Hertzog. The premiere is scheduled for October in Las Vegas!
