The Cutthroat Series: Grandguignol Duels at The Flea

The Flea Theater, New York City.
The Fall season of 2014 at The Flea was dedicated to the Cutthroat Series, eleven Grand-Guignol plays organized in four pods. Each of them replicated the concept of the douche écossaise, a mix of gory and lustful pieces. I directed Tics, or Doing the Deed (Apres Coup!... ou Tics) by René Berton with a cast of BATS, the resident company.
Not only did the title of the series apply to the stories portrayed, it also meant that each evening the audience voted for the best play, eliminating the others. Tics received the most votes and was extended for a run in January 2015 for the Winners' Victory Lap.

To publicize the entire event The Flea produced a scary video where my cast experimented with makeup and grandguignol grimaces. You can watch it below.

Tics, or Doing the Deed by René Berton

The Flea Theater, New York City.
The Fall season of 2014 at The Flea was dedicated to the Cutthroat series, eleven Grand-Guignol plays organized in four pods. Each of them replicated the concept of the douche écossaise, a mix of gory and lustful pieces. Not only did the title of the series apply to the stories portrayed, it also meant that each evening the audience voted for the best play, eliminating the others.
I directed Tics, or Doing the Deed (Apres Coup!... ou Tics) by René Berton with a cast of BATS, the resident company. In this outright farce, animal instincts resurface and human impediments disrupt the tranquil and boring routines of the bourgeoisie in the country. Everything ends with a loud and chaotic pandemonium. Tics received the most votes and was extended for a run in January 2015 for the Winners' Victory Lap.

Resident Director: The Flea Theater - New York City

In October 2013 Jim Simpson, artistic director of The Flea Theater, accepted me as Resident Director and part of the team of this Off-Off Broadway venue. It's a very exciting development in my career and I look forward to many collaborative projects, especially now that another more spacious building is being prepared to host a brand new version of The Flea.
