In observance of World Theatre Day 2021, I created this piece of Butoh theatre in reaction to what I observe to be the senseless loss of life that took place in Artsakh last year that still remains painfully unresolved.

"Sometimes one can get so lost in dreams that reality is almost another realm."
Through others, one is able to see himself for who and what he truly is, even if it's only for the briefest of moments... and then the clay crumbles.
My plays, published and otherwise, have lived in various forms on three continents and have been translated into Chinese and Russian.
I have taught and led workshops in international and local schools and theatres in China, Kenya, Russia, and Armenia.
I have appeared on stage, in film, and in video game voice-overs in the UK, US, and China.
I hold an MFA in Writing for Stage and Screen from the New Hampshire Institute of Art, an M.Ed. in IB Education from Oakland University, and have studied at the Actors Studio Drama School.
