“. .I have often addressed the issues of peace, tolerance and co-existence through traditional performance, contemporizing classic plays, stories and myths for the modern theater, and by creating new works in collaboration with artists from other cultures. My literary creative writings, scholarly research and publications have also been informed by these goals, which I strive to infuse into my teachings whenever and wherever possible.  Thus, for over a decade I have practiced and taught peacebuilding through the arts.

“I believe that theatre is what happens in the minds of the audience as they leave the building.  I have strived to expand this dialogue from the stage and the actors to the house and among the audience with anticipation that they would spread their discoveries throughout the community and the world at large.”
