johnbrown by Dean Moss at the Kitchen

In May I was thrilled to work with Dean Moss and company on a video of a short scripted text written by playwright Thomas Bradshaw that was included in the new work: johnbrown.  johnbrown premiered at the Kitchen in October.  


Directed and produced by Dean Moss/Gametophyte, Inc. from a commissioned original text by Thomas Bradshaw, it features (in order of appearance): Pete Simpson as John Brown; Okwui Okpokwasili as Frederick Douglass; Aaron Hodges as Watson (JB's son), and Tymberly Canale as Helen Pitts (FD's second wife). The custom created wigs and hair pieces were designed and constructed by Amanda Miller.
