Directing : Royal Osiris Karaoke Ensemble (2015-PRESENT)
ROKE is a performance and installation project founded by sound/media artist Tei Blow and painter/sculptor Sean McElroy, described as "a musical priesthood that explores the metaphysics and mythologies of love, desire, and courtship at the end of the 20th century." I am a core creative member of the team, involved in writing, design, engineering, music composition, interactivity, and touring. I do the staging and lighting, and sometimes get to perform as well.
