The layered dynamics between myself and my time traveling, tool wearing alterego, Pirate Jenny, (PJ) are finally expressed in this new work. This piece in progress uses personal narrative, music, repurposed items, sculpture and live performance. The berimbau player becomes a vehicle in which I play with and unpack the common threads and differences residing between both PJ and myself. The Tales of Pirate Jenny debuted at IN HER NAME Theatre/Playwrights festival at the 13th St Repertory Theatre, NYC, 4/15/16.
