Revelation was ultimately made out of a pursuit of the love of process. It was created as a gift, to ourselves and to the arts loving community. It’s available online. If it gives you a moment of beauty, if it touches you, please pass it on and share those moments with another. Thank you so much for being an integral part of Revelation’s journey.
Director’s notes from our sold-out premiere at Teatro Zinzanni:
What is Revelation?
A revelation can occur to you, or it can come from within the your own heart. It can arrive like trumpets and timpani, or with a still small voice. A revelation changes your world.
Six wordless micro-short films explore the moment of epiphany – the space between what was and what is – through generative movement, from the perspective of six actresses.
Each microshort is intended as a stand-alone piece, that when viewed together transcend the individual experience and touch the universal. Follow the journey from its coming of age origin, through gaining a sense of power, the discovery of loss, the love for family, the wisdom of experience, until final microshort that encompasses them all – that this mortal coil is but a dream within the dream we sojourn here on earth.
Revelation was created in ensemble work over several months in Spring 2012, and filmed in two days. Our script was ourselves – our hopes, fears, vulnerabilities, strengths, dreams, and desires.
Thank you for joining in our journey!
It was really important to me to break down a revelation into its parts – the inception, the realization, and the denouement. I wanted to see a shift in everyone’s character – the world before and after their revelation. It was an amazing process, largely because the actresses were so fearless. They were game to try every weird exercise I came up with, and played full out from a non-judgmental place. Every rehearsal was like a playground. Very magical.
I’m happy to announce my next project, an experimental short called Revelation.
I’m blogging about the process (and how you can be invoved), here:

This is a creative process I’ve yearned for, and I love the dynamic exploration it calls for. I won’t be acting in this one – I’ll be directing and producing – and I have six extremely talented, expressive actresses committed to the project who will blow your mind.
Excited to bring you more behind the scenes. I’m striving to make this as transparent a process as possible, so if there’s anything you want to see or know about, just say the word.
