Resident Artist: The Power of Silence

Theaterlab, New York City
In April 2013 I was selected as one of the 20 resident artists for a three week marathon on the theme "The Power of Silence" produced by Forwardflux at Theaterlab in New York City. This was an awesome experience made of fruitful discussion and unexpected discoveries, but most of all of intense collaboration with artists from many disciplines, including visual arts, dance, and even advanced mathematics. Additionally, since I was involved in 4 projects overall, I enjoyed stepping out of my usual role of director and perform as actor in a couple of them.

Hamlet in Raimondo's Castle (from Shakespeare)

Montecuccoli Tower, Pavullo and Monteceneri Tower, Lama Mocogno, Modena, Italy
This site-specific Hamlet summer project was held at two historical locations, very different spatially, a remodeled castle that normally functioned as a museum hall and a multi-level medieval tower near Modena, Italy. I directed Act III in a postmodern experimental way: for instance, the dialogue between Hamlet and the Queen (scene 4) occurred three times, in separate versions that spanned the range between ironic detachment and intense emotional involvement. Overall, my interpretation of the whole act derived by a sense that every character is constantly under surveillance and every scene is being watched by someone else within the world of the play. For the same project, I appeared as one of the play-within-the play masked actors.
