My Skewed View of Death – According to Steve Huff

I'm not an avid follower of Steve Huff, who runs Huff Paranormal. However, I do watch his stuff from time to time. I have to give the guy credit, as he has drawn a very large audience with his work and giving exposure to the paranormal field. He has made a name for himself specifically… Continue reading My Skewed View of Death – According to Steve Huff

The Performance of Ghost Hunting, Part I

This is a two-part post about my studies into the relationship between performance and the act of ghost hunting. A performance is typically defined as an event where there is someone who is presenting something, and there are a group of people observing. This definition of performance is not limited to only theatres or television… Continue reading The Performance of Ghost Hunting, Part I

Howard Barker & Theatre of Catastrophe

A truly fascinating and yet terrifying playwright I've come across is British playwright, Howard Barker. Granted, he's not Sarah Kane-scary, but his work is disturbing.  Barker created the genre of "Theatre of Catastrophe" to describe his work, because no other genre described his style the way he wanted it.  In the 1980's, Barker coined the… Continue reading Howard Barker & Theatre of Catastrophe

The Creative World That Surrounds Me

First of all, many apologies for not keeping up with this blog.  I've had lots of exciting things come my way the last few months and I've gotten wrapped up in the whirlwind of the awesomeness.  Is that a word?  If not, I don't care.  I'm still using it. Recently I've taken notice of all… Continue reading The Creative World That Surrounds Me

Not All Audiences Are the Same

The following is a paper I wrote for my theories class during my graduate studies.  We were asked to write about our own theories of theatre using theorists we studied for that semester.  Since writing this paper, I often revisit it to tweak and alter since my theory has changed numerous times.  Hopefully you'll enjoy...… Continue reading Not All Audiences Are the Same
