Hooray!! After a long Covid hiatus, Theater of Death returns, performing in a new giant tent space. I had written a few short plays for the virus theme, and one of them was performed. I also got to work on costumes and props and helped backstage. Lots of work and sold-out shows. I also won the Palme d’Coal award at this year’s Madrid (NM) Film Festival for my short music video / sci fi horror film, Robot Toilet.
The Selfie & Thank You for Calling
2 film projects this year –
I play an old woman in the short horror/comedy film, “The Selfie.” I wrote the script (adapted from a longer stage version I wrote) and Joe West produced and directed it. Great fun to make and people to work with. It was a crowd pleaser at the Madrid, NM Film Festival this year!
Then I went crazy making this bizarre horror/comedy/sci-fi, “Thank You for Calling.” I submitted it last minute to the Madrid, NM Film Festival and was surprised they accepted it, and even more surprised when it got the Audience Choice Award.
2020, What the…
Film is where my creative energies went this crazy year. I had still been writing short plays, but there could be no plans to perform because of Covid-19. My beloved fiance, Mauri, was happy to help me record a radio play, The Meat That You Eat. https://youtu.be/Dp1eYlVyBtM
Then we filmed an extended ending to my 2016 CSI ABQ. https://youtu.be/SoRkAKtDIPA
The films got more bizarre as Mauri and I made A WARNING https://youtu.be/AeeTWSF66q8 and 91-DIVOC https://youtu.be/PSss4uXDH-U.
All three “films” were submitted to the 3rd Annual Madrid Film Festival (Madrid, New Mexico, the festival created by Joe West’s Theater of Death). CSI ABQ 2020 Extended Ending won Best Comedy.
Theater of Death also posted past performances at the Engine House Theater in Madrid. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCbtHYfD46W71E7JGTtH2QUg
