I explore media in transition. My research encompasses film, video, print, digital arts, and the web. I'm interested in what artists and writers are doing and in what critics and scholars are saying.

Leah's Belated Hurrah

You can now preview Leah's Belated Hurrah online. This multi-volume text can be read in a variety of ways: as a linear narrative; as the early stages of a script for film, video, or interactive digital platforms; and as the basis of a choreographed dance performance.

The entire piece contains separate chapters/performances for selected time periods in the main character’s life, from childhood to middle age. Each decade of her life is represented: Chronologically, the first performance takes place in the mid-1960s, and the last one, so far, takes place in December 1999. Leah’s Belated Hurrah may be read in any order, since each chapter is designed to stand on its own, as well as part of the ongoing narrative.
