I am a theater maker, visual artist, and professor of performance and theater studies.
I am currently appointed as a Visiting Assistant Professor at Bates College in Lewiston, Maine, where I teach performance studies, theater history, and devised performance methods in the Department of Theater and Dance. I specialize in modern and contemporary drama, theater for social justice, and gender studies.
My current book project, The Radiant Abyss: Boredom and the Modern Stage, examines the social and aesthetic utility of boredom in confined spaces such as theaters and prisons.
At Harvard, I have served since 2016 as the Executive Director of the Mellon School of Theater and Performance Research. I also coordinated the Theater and Performance Colloquium from 2014-2017. During the year 2018-2019, I was a Mellon Fellow at the Council for European Studies at Columbia University.
Outside of the academy, I make theater with the New York-based Cacolet Collective and the Durham, NC-based Delta Boys.
