I collaborated with Ezra Dickinson on Psychic Radio Star, as Assistant Director and Costume Designer. Outer space meets schizophrenia in this work made as a gift for a self-described psychic radio star. For over ten years, Seattle dance artist Ezra Dickinson has created emotionally powerful solo dance performances as gifts for his schizophrenic mother. Psychic Radio Star is a culmination of these gifts: a mixture of childhood memories, mythologies, an extraordinary imagination, and Dickinson’s virtuoso talents in dance and visual art. Providing a voice for his mother’s experiences while also telling his own story, Dickinson aims to open a space for conversations about mental health and the failed health care system in the USA. Psychic Radio Star premiered November 3–6, 2016 at On the Boards Mainstage.
