Indie theatre – projects born of passion, obsession with the craft and commitment to artistic integrity – is my home base. In addition to nurturing the growth of the indie theatre movement in St Louis, I am committed to deepening my own exploration of the discipline. The growth of indie theatre delivers healthy social disruption within a conventional industry, and opens new and wonderfully elastic grounds for experimentation with ways to engage locals with a deeper exploration of cultural identity.

ACT YOUR PANTS OFF

The K of D: An Urban Legend

An immersive performance in the backyard of a converted historic home-turned-artistic incubator, the minimalist set disguised technically profound sound, lighting, and scenic effects with found-object design. Coupled with Tom Martin's delicate direction under the Blue Rose Stage Collective moniker, a live campfire, storytelling, and shared meal engaged a fully sensory experience of Laura Schellhardt's otherwise traditional theatrical work.
