It's called <i>Silhouette</i>, and it's going to be produced as part of <a href="">Annex Theatre</a>'s 31st season in the spring of 2018. <p /> The rough elevator pitch goes something like: "Magic and technology collide on a distant world, when a long lost band of settlers is forced to confront a colonizing fleet." Also, the thing will be mostly a cappella! I think. I'm still writing it. But lots and lots and lots of voices. Plus, after my experience with <a href=""><i>Majesty</i></a>, I'm inspired to try to get some aerial-inspired movement into the show. <p /> We shall see!<br /><br /> Wed, 27 Sep 2017 10:54:45 -0700 Thought Experiments on the Question of Being Human Wed, 27 Sep 2017 10:47:34 -0700 Storm and Desire: A Prelude <img src='' align='right' hspace='4' vspace='4'>2017 update: We stopped posting this weekly webcomic a while back, but I realized I still have the prelude stories online at Tumblr and wanted to archive that fact here on the blog.
