His current research divides into two strands. The first considers the formation and limits of the work of politics within contemporary US theater in a work tentatively entitled “The Political Geography of Latinx Theater.” The second explores the theory and practice of performance/performative writing organized into two projects in process: Compositional Potentials explores forms of composition (dance and writing) as performances of theory/theoretical practices using examples from collaborative practice with choreographer David Grenke; Writing Words: An Essay ___ Performance is a performative theoretical investigation of writing as/with/about performance.
