ciao tutti .. here’s what I am up to so far in 2018
I’m in Louisville at the marvelous Actors Theatre of Louisville performing as a sensible Skink (that’s a lizard) in Anne Washburn and Dave Malloy’s LITTLE BUNNY FOO FOO, (now thru Feb 5) directed by Les Waters. It’s an all-star group of people: Sam Breslin Wright is the titular Bunny, April Matthis is our Blue Fairy, 10 adorable kids play field mice, plus a crew of Gentlemen Toads, a Girl Fairy Chorus, a Catmonster, and a garden gnome.
I’ll be doing back-to-back residencies at Abrons Arts Center and SPACE on Ryder Farm. At Abrons I’ll be working with Knud Adams on a new piece ALOHA, ALOHA that’ll premiere at Abrons in April and at SPACE I’ll script tinkering and talking walks in the snowy woods.
Kippy’s back with Season 3 of REAL TALK / KIP TALK Mar 6 and 7 at La Mama directed by Sarah Hughes with live video by David Pym. Rehearsing ALOHA, ALOHA and doing some guest teaching at Boston University.
Premiering ALOHA, ALOHA OR WHEN I WAS QUEEN at Abrons Arts Center (Apr 4 – 21) directed by Knud Adams with visual elements by Elizabeth Chabot, soundscapes by Jerome Ellis and lighting by Kate McGee.
