I was excited to learn week before last that my proposal was selected as a workshop for the upcoming Pedagogy and Theater of the Oppressed which will be in Austin, TX this year. I attended the conference last year with The Saartjie Project and we performed then. I enjoyed being in Minnesota, but I am really looking forward to being Texas. I've only been in Texas briefly when we stopped in Texas when I was a cruise of the Gulf of Mexico.
The workshop I'm presenting is about my first play Shades of Black: a thought in progress which I wrote and produced when working as a college administrator. I will sharing with educators how to use theater as a tool of engagement.

I think I'm going to take my 6 year-old. School should be out by then-- or almost out, and I think she will enjoy it. The thing to worry about now is getting a reasonably priced air & hotel package now that airplane tickets are ridiculously priced and airlines charge for every single thing. Wish me luck!
