Heading to Texas for Pedagogy & Theater of the Oppressed Conference

(In photo: I'm performing with the theater company The Saartjie Project. We performed in the 2009 Pedagogy & Theater of the Oppressed Conference in Minnesota)

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!

Kool. You're going to be in my neck of the wood. (Close enough) That is basicly where Anne lives. Let me know when and I may drive down to see you if you have any free time.
