Storywork is my practice of writing through performance, and of performing as a form of writing. All of my storywork draws upon my own lived experience for its source material. Sometimes storywork finds its way to print; sometimes storywork evanesces again and again in performance. But whether it ends up on the page, stays on the stage, or dances between the two, storywork insistently twines the processes of writing and performing, so that the one can never be fully untangled from the other.
