Fly is passionate about dramaturgy-driven season selection, community & audience engagement, and educational program and curriculum development – both in academic and arts-based institutions.

Fly has extensive experience in generating conventional production dramaturgy materials, as well as experimental dramaturgy such as art installations and interactive activities and counter-texts to engage with and enrich the experience of the audience and the creative team.

Fly studied Affective Devising and the Moment Work devising technique developed by Tectonic Theatre Project with Professor Greg Pierotti at The University of Arizona.

I often work freelance as a production dramaturg, and the program note is the most visible part of my work in this role. Here is a folio of program notes written between 2017-2019. Each short note is the result of deep analysis and research on the piece, the performing company, the production team, the organization, and their intended audience – and then synthesizing all of this information into a brief contextualizing thought to offer the moment before the world of the play cracks open each night.
