THE ELECTRIC BABY at Towson

The collaboration with the brilliant Yury Urnov continues. He’s a dream collaborator—generous, open, and positive. While my title for this piece was “Movement Director,” Yury understands that my perspective merges intention, rhythm, dynamic, physicality, and voice, and we were able to create together in a really refreshing and exciting way. In the context of a conventional production schedule, I had the rare luxury of working with the cast for three full rehearsals of skill building workshops to kick of the process, which gave the cast an embodied approach to the text and scene work. The script was full of metaphor and opportunities for building rich images and relationships.
