My performance work brings narrative in contact with a physical presentation of language. As a writer and a digital artist, performance as a third medium allows me to stage pieces of fiction in a self-reflexively subject matter. My performances are always interactive, and require willing participation. Collaborative narratives, which require multiple voices and acts of speech, translates prepared text and objects into a morphed language contingent on the bodies in the room.

Performing written pieces undoes some of the solitary elements of writing. At stake in my work is the power and importance of communication, listening, and communally engaging text.
