A few days after putting together my updated tour for 2020, I started getting calls cancelling gigs because of the Corona virus. All work till July has been cancelled and it could continue through the summer. It's bad news all over but it has pushed me to start on a project I've been thinking about for awhile: collaborating and directing other artists online using Skype or Zoom. It's the next best thing to being there! Check out the info here. I'm very excited about this! It will allow me to work with artists all over the world, in various disciplines over their entire creative process.
I'll also use this downtime to continue working on my new show, "Icarus at the Office." Slapstick on an office chair, eccentric dance on public transport, flaming books and paper dragons, juggling, magic, Post It Note slinkies, and a pair of angel wings ... this one is a wild mix of ideas and images! Video coming soon.
My first of two books on teaching and devising for Clown and Physical Comedy will be published by Nick Hern Books under their Drama Games Series. It should be out before the summer touring starts. The second book, CLOWN The Physical Comedian will be published by Bloomsbury in the fall. They'll be available online and on bookshelves this year so stay tuned!
