Thank You: To my devoted cast, for coming in on day one, ready for anything and full of energy—I couldn’t even have begun this project without you. You are all talented performers and should be proud of your work. To Ruth Bowman for making me believe in the magic of performance and devising. To Craig Gingrich-Philbrook, for guidance, friendship, and encouragement. To Rob Sphar, for all your conversations about Remix, New Media, and what it all means. To Rick Jones, for bringing your lighting into the ‘mix; the rest of the Kleinau staff Heather and Nico; and Carlye, Poe, and all the 390’s who pitched in to help. To our technology for only minor hiccups. To conversation partners Jonny Gray, Rebecca Walker, Ron Pelias, Jason Hedrick, Bunny, and plenty of other folks from both SPCM and MCMA who’ve helped me form ideas over the last year. Thank you to Husni for recording the show in innovative ways and to Christi and Roscoe for working their camera magic. Finally, thank you to my collaborative and romantic partner, Nichole Nicholson. You are always there, reading my mind and making my visions go. Gratitude is insufficient for the amount of time you’ve spent with me on this project—all I can give in return, is love.
