Story Gauntlet: Live! | Producer/Director/Performer
REykjavik Fringe 2022 | July 2 & 3, 2022

One story. Many Storytellers. One Gauntlet. This video, virtual game of storytelling telephone is going live and getting even more chaotic, as each gauntlet will leave one story forever changed by the fickle memories, short attention spans, and high anxiety of its storytellers.

After winning The Reykjavik Award at the Virtual PortFringe 2021, Story Gauntlet gets the chance to go international and bring a live, multimedia, in-person 60-minute version of this event to Reykjavik, Iceland in summer 2022!

Waiting for Alice by Allison McCall | Director
Mad Horse Theatre CoMPANY | Digital stream thru June 30th

What is an Alice? In the liminal space of the Mad Tea Party, the Mad Hatter, March Hare, and Dormouse maintain their ceremony of stories, games, tea, and colorful chaos under the watchful eye of the Cheshire Cat as they prepare for Alice’s long-awaited arrival. Waiting for Alice is a physical, absurdist, and surreal ensemble-driven play that explores the ritual of a tight-knit community forever bound by circumstance.
