I'm a word person,
and as such
I fall prey
to the western
predeliction -
the sacrosanct text

been reading artaud
watching kaufman
and trying desperately
to think in pictures
and arriving only
at process

compositions for actors
where neither the text
nor the pictures are primary
the process is

if the process is good
the pictures
and the text
will work
interesting experiment?

best I can do


so much to learn
to really pull this
stuff off

i'd bury myself in
work if only I could
continue to eat

reading some
of the Greeks now
thinking of chorus
and poetry
and blood

(later I'll
talk to all
of you about
the power
of liquid
let's not
be afraid
to be messy...
I'll scrub the stage
on my knees
every night
if we have to
if we have to
to make things
to make things

some things
should be wet.)

nothing but love
and respect
and the desire
to push through
them both
and do the work

and now to bed.

365 DAYS/365 PLAYS

The most audacious project yet from Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Suzan-Lori Parks (Topdog/Underdog; Fucking A), 365 Days/365 Plays is a simultaneous, national performance collaboration, encompassing over 700 groups and individual artists from New York to Los Angeles, Seattle to Atlanta.


In November 2002, Parks began writing a play a day for 365 consecutive days. Last year, she and producer Bonnie Metzger invited artists to present a play a day, in exactly the order Parks wrote them. It began November 13, 2006 and will continue through November 12, 2007. Artists sign up to present a week of performances, at which time they receive the plays for that week. The rule: The performances must be presented free of charge to the public.

Infernal Bridegroom will participate January 15 - 21, 2007. IBP associate artistic director Troy Schulze is directing the entire week of performances. IBP is the first Houston group to participate. Other local groups, including HSPVA, Mildred's Umbrella, Bobbindoctrin Puppet Theater, Nova Arts Project, DiverseWorks and Galveston's Strand Theater have signed on for other weeks throughout the year.

Whole Foods Market is a presenting partner in IBP's week of shows and will be providing free food and drinks from its "365" product line for our audiences. Beer and wine will be for sale at the Axiom bar.

Come one night; come every night! Each performance is different, and who knows what will happen!
