We focus on current ART as we travel around the United States and abroad. Art to us includes investigating the people, the food, the drink and the community surroundings to tap into the real pulse. Travel fans follow us as we go #ARTING About...? for adventure.
In 1995 Mendocino College hired me, your humble artist, to direct the production of "A Midsummer Night's Dream." The 20th Century Russian master theater director Vsevolod Meyerhold was a major influence in my approach to theater. His working theory of Biomechanics intrigue me because it unlocked the slavish connection between having to "feel" what your character was "experiencing." I rejected "Method" acting. Biomechanics gave me a "method" to character development through physicalization. It does not matter if an actor feels anything. What matters is if the AUDIENCE feels. Biomechanics engaged the art of physical communication.
