ClimActs WET! 2015 – Theater Offensive

Abe Rybeck,  Founding Director of The Theater Offensive  has been pushing the boundaries of LGBTQ activism for over 30 years and I am so fortunate to have been able to interact with him over the years.  We met at the National Performance Network – Annual meeting on Miami Beach at the Deauville Hotel.  It was during an after party, when suddenly, hardcore Cuban salsa music started to blast into the Grand Ballroom and before I knew it we where on the dance floor “salsaing” our brains out.

Since then I have considered him a mentor, confident and source of inspiration.  Here are scenes from CLIMACTS – WET!  2015.  An immersive performance installation I collaborated on with The Theater Offensive staff under the Artistic/Executive leadership of Nick Bazzo,  Adrian Budhu and Evelyn Francis with the super generous support of the NPN.

Here is a little excerpt of the video I created during my residency in Boston that played on the most gorgeous LED Flat screen.
