It really does seem hopeless sometimes. Everyday, I open the door, pick up the paper, open it and think, “What are we going to do”? The stories keep coming, and they keep getting worse. There is intractable conflict in every area on every level – from our devastating and deadly crisis in the rule of law, to the deep and... more...Filters: TE'A

Can theatre uncover the surface of police-community conflict? Absolutely. Because writing a play is something like opting to write a letter instead of engaging in an emotionally charged argument with someone you’re in conflict with. The kind of argument where you worry that the words won’t come out right, if at all. If only... more...Filters: TE'A

When Vieve recently approached me about sharing a bit of my experience regarding Insight theory and my life, my initial reaction was “where do I even begin? It changed everything.” After a few days of mulling over how best to express the massive impact on me, I decided I would focus upon my assimilation of Insight into my... more...Filters: TE'A

In a previous blog, I wrote about some of the artistic elements we are employing in the creation of There's Something About America, including music and movement. Here is a short video capturing the Company working with what we are calling "Loop" choreography. The movement suggests the figure of the Insight Loop. The Loop... more...Filters: TE'A
- BlogMon, 6 Oct 2014Uniform Justice
Last Tuesday, I experienced Intersections’ staged reading of Uniform Justice, a play we produced in Memphis, TN after months of conversations between law enforcement personnel and members of a mostly African American community. In Memphis, like in Ferguson, MO, trust in the police force—and policing in general—has... more...Filters: TE'A
