Fly’s work explores the intersections and oscillations of history, myth, and contemporary experience through the (de)construction and performance of identity, memory, and the body in space and time.

Fly’s writing is highly visual, informed by dance and the plastic arts, and resonates at times with language more as music or pattern than straight narrative or text. Their work is influenced by the Moment Work devising technique, which informs their approach to playwriting via a post-dramatic, post-modern lens and the incorporation of primary research materials into the text.
