Below you will find my current literary and performance projects.
My first novel!
A work-in-progress (98% complete), the working title of my first novel is, “A Version of Me” or “A/version of Me”.
It is a fictionalized memoir of a two-spirit Cherokee and Jewish woman, reconciling with her transness in a non-trans world. She learns to speak the language of her own authenticity by transforming personal and ancestral trauma, vacillating between romantic relationships, and spreading herself a little too thin across an ocean and maybe… beyond.

I recently appeared with collaborators in Berlin, B_Tour, who create nomadic curatorial platforms for contemporary performance artists. We met for a curatorial-dramaturgical research project, examining the staging of speculative futures in the field of public art.

Jenseits der Natur, Club Real
Jenseits der Natur, Volksherrschaft im Garten Berlin, is a collaboration of Club Real, a Berlin- and Vienna-based collective of artists working to make ecological, participatory, immersive, durational, political theater.
A constitution for a small, burgeoning garden/forest in Wedding, Berlin has been ratified, which forms a Parlament of Organisms, an Executive, and a Constitutional Court.
In 2019 there was a sitting of the first Parlament of Organisms, an executive action day in the garden, and a hearing of two constitutional complains for various organisms in Ballhaus Ost in Berlin.
In 2020 we improvised because of Corona regulations and had the second sitting of Parlament via Jitsi Meet and YouTube Live. The Executive + Court proceeded on-site, albeit with masks and distance in accordance with regulations at that time.
Now the 3. Sitzung des Parlament der Organismen is scheduled! Visit clubreal.de for more information.
In collaboration with David Lindemann, in May 2020 Club Real released Season 1 of a radio drama (in three parts) — das Hörspiel ist auf Deutsch und Englisch übrigens — with Season 2 forthcoming by Winter 2021.
It will be released in its entirety as a podcast on Deutschlandfunk Kultur beginning January 2021. Featured are the voices of Marianne Ramsay-Sonneck, David Lindemann, Georg Reinhardt, Anna Brooks-Beckman, and Aurelie Richards.
