contact name: Jaime Kleiman
Artists I have worked with: Liz Swados, Mary Overlie, Steve Waungh, Keith Powell (dramaturgy and production).
As for similar artists, I can say that Penny Arcade's work interests me, as does Karen Finley's and Annie Sprinkle's. Are we similar artists? No. I'm being vain here, but I haven't seen anyone do what I do (for better or for worse). And I ADORE Richard Foreman.
I am an Artistic Associate with The Profession, Inc., a new non-profit theatre company.
BFA, Acting, NYU TIsch School of the Arts (Experimental Theatre Wing)
Acted in numerous plays (specializing in new works with avant-garde artists such as Liz Swados in "Naked People Wearing Clothes").
Director of self-scripted work, as well as children's musicals.
Also a published poet and playwright, available for collaborations with anyone who wants to challenge conventional thought, methods, art...I always want to meet new people and create something!
