I'm a media/performance artist based in the U.K. I've written over a hundred texts for performance works, and have presented work in living rooms, galleries, and unusual spaces (sometimes in theaters) in cities like Phoenix, Brooklyn, Mérida, Dublin, Berlin and Kraków. I was artistic director of Theater in My Basement from 1999-2013, and served as a founding member of Howl Theatre Project from 2013-2018. My book of writings, ‘Dog’s Ear’ (illustrated by my kid, Elli Danowski-Underiner) was published in September 2018 by Hoot n' Waddle Press (https://squareup.com/store/hootnwaddle). I've been teaching performance, theatre, and art in university settings since 2003. In June, 2017, I completed my doctorate from Plymouth University in the U.K. in Art and Media, linking together Afro-Latinx ritual techniques for spirit possession and method acting as a transcultural performance methodology. In the Autumn of 2018, I moved to the U.K. I am currently a Senior Lecturer in Performance at the University of Portsmouth. I, I, I, I, I AM SO HAPPY TO SEE YOU. Hope you've been doing all right with all the, you know.
