(I Wanna Be A Producer #1) To kick things off, we’re going to start at the very beginning. Picture this-inspiration has struck, and you’ve had an idea for a show that you’ve just gotta make happen! Except….that’s all you’ve got…because at this point, you haven’t done a darn thing except think the thought. Today, I’m… Continue reading So I have this idea…now what?

Turning Dreams Into Plans
It’s an incredible thing to have dreams. I’m in favor of having lots of dreams. In fact, sometimes I daydream about having an Alpaca farm. I also just spent the last post writing about the importance of dreams, and how dreams are necessary for clarifying your goals, plans, and priorities. But here’s the million-dollar question-… Continue reading Turning Dreams Into Plans
If you had a magic wand, what would you create?
Through my work with Choreography Lab, I often find myself asking people open-ended questions that utilize a bit of magic. For instance, I will ask choreographers “if they could magically find themselves choreographing a large full-budget revival of any musical, what would it be and why?”, or I’ll ask composers, “if you could magically have… Continue reading If you had a magic wand, what would you create?

The Ephemera Origin Story
I get a lot of questions about “Ephemera”. They’re usually of the “what the heck is this show” variety: “is it a play?, “is it dance?”, “is there a plot?”, etc. But the question I personally like the best is usually the follow up question to all of that- “how did you come up with… Continue reading The Ephemera Origin Story

Thankfully, every day of this new year I’m managing to get just a little bit more caught up with various projects I’ve started in the last two years. I’m hoping that 2016 will… Continue reading Some Month Late 2015-2016 Thoughts
Hey, remember when I had a blog?
So, I just renewed this domain…and I very sadly realized, The Strategic Artist has been more or less dormant for a year. That’s unfortunate! However, I have been working on many lovely and fulfilling artistic projects, so I suppose there’s a plus side to every situation. I’m going to start re-sharing some of my old… Continue reading Hey, remember when I had a blog?

Well, there have been several reasons why I haven’t written much in the last few months. I created a pretty large piece of Immersive Dance Theater, and have also been performing on a National Tour. So life’s been a little hectic, to say the least! But I just want to say a few words about… Continue reading #Tourlife
