Untamed Denton: An Interview with Cameron Neal

I spent a good portion of my interview with Cameron Neal worrying about the ox head.

Performance and Storytelling on the London Stage.

The following is the first in a series of diary entries that track the progress of my Artist Development Fellowship, as I work on a series of pieces for theatre using puppets, animations and actors.

The Mystery of Denton's Music

You probably haven’t heard of Denton, Texas. At just over 100,000 people, it usually plays third fiddle to its gargantuan neighbors Dallas and Fort Worth. Still, Denton is hardly a household name.

A Night at the Bowery

On a Tuesday night, I found myself in the Bowery neighborhood of downtown New York. An atypical night of the week to be out and about perhaps, but not, it seems, for the underground-music-loving, tight-denim-wearing set that flocked to the Bowery for a heady dose of indie and art.

Heavy Germanic All-Nighter Playlist

Sorry folks, Spring Break is over. Luckily, the Arts Board is here to help. Successful execution of an all-nighter requires mastery of the myriad emotional states that stress and exhaustion produce—grief, anger, narcissism, joy, transcendence. After careful research, Arts has found that the best tools for dealing with stress are copious volumes of coffee and music from the German classical repertoire. Enjoy.
