Brothers and Sisters (2015)

Length: 55 min

 

This investigation of Roman Catholic faith explores the imagery, stories, and music that is witnessed and shared by a congregation.  While paralleling the structure of a traditional mass, it will bring to life unique elements that provide relevance for the world in which we live.  Brothers and Sisters has been presented in both proscenium theater and church venues in its full 55 minute form and in shortened excerpts as needed. 

 

MacArthur Drive (2012)

Music: Jackie McLean

Length: 10 min

 

MacArthur Drive is the street I grew up on in Williamsville, NY, a suburb of Buffalo. Our lives are shaped by the environment that surrounds us, and my story is no different. This dance is the beginning of my investigation of those people and circumstances, and how it has created the person I currently am. It's also an invitation for you to begin the same investigation.
