Over the past few years, I have dedicated much of my time to building and launching DreamQuilt. After two years of producing independent alternative theatre, including Gainesville’s first “mixed-media variety show,” tribute shows to Jim Henson and Joss Whedon, and a rock musical revue, I had my efforts derailed by the closure of my home venue.
With the help of UF Warrington College of Business’ Big Idea Competition, I developed a business plan, and DreamQuilt will launch in its full capacity this year. I’m excited to have two new business partners and a pilot program that will allow us to finally begin growing.
I also limited CerridwenWorks to its film-related endeavors, and released its first mini-documentary, A Million Moments, last fall, as part of a series on anti-violence activism. The next two films in the series are a reflexive ethnography of the antifa movement and a faux-documentary about intimate partner abuse. I am also working on a documentary about the cirque and puppetry movements.
