The Lower East Side Biography Project Presents Richard Foreman, Part 1

APRIL 24 and MAY 15 Inline image 2

Richard Foreman, Part 1 at 11pm EST on Time Warner Channel 34, RCN 82, FIOS 33 and streaming on MNN 1

I’ve been editing this material over the last year and am thrilled to be sharing this episode, part 1 of 2, with you.  The show and archive are an incredible resource and provide windows into the minds and lives of folks who have shaped the cultural landscape of downtown New York in the last 50 years.  I find the material fascinating and inspirational; I hope you do too!  For those particularly curious, the episode is airing alongside the opening of Foreman’s latest work OLD FASHIONED PROSTITUTES at the Public Theater.

The LES Bio Project is a community media project, a television biography series and video oral history archive that was created in 1999 by Penny Arcade & Steve Zehentner. The project creates 28-minute biographies & holds over 1300 tapes in it’s archive.

Associate produced by Dean Lance and Rick Jungers, the LES Biography Project’s biographies and archive works to ensure that future generations have access to the mad souls of invention that built this New York City neighborhood’s reputation as an incubator for authenticity, rebellion and iconoclasm. The project seeks to stem the tide of cultural amnesia by bridging the cultural gap between long time residents of New York’s Lower East Side and newcomers to the rapidly gentrifying neighborhood.

The project’s biographies cablecast in New York City every Wednesday at 11pm EST on Time Warner Channel 34, RCN 82, FIOS 33, and stream live on Manhattan Neighborhood Network Channel One

Opening TONIGHT Friday, January 11, 2013 at the VORHEES THEATER in Dumbo!


I’m thrilled to be performing live Foley and puppeteering in Adhesive Theater’s production of Erin Courtney’s new play directed by Meghan Finn.  


Adhesive Theater Project 
In residence at The New York City College of Technology presents:

The Service Road 
by Erin Courtney
Directed by Meghan Finn

Featuring: Cory Einbinder*, Kalle Macrides,
Claire Moodey
 and Caroline Tamas
With live foley and music composed by Mark Bruckner
Set Design:  Mike Riccio Costume Design: Tilly Grimes
Lighting Design: Sue Brandt  Video & Puppet Design: Cory Einbinder

A violent storm of mythic proportions hits Prospect Park.  The once peaceful service road turns strange as a nature guide attempts to find a lost child.  Obie award-winning playwright (13P’s Map of Virtue) Erin Courtney examines what it means to be of service and the true nature of forgiveness. Meghan Finn seamlessly blends Erin’s sparse poetic language with the playful, highly visual multimedia spectacle that you’ve come to expect from Adhesive Theater Project.

Spectral Findings

a theater concert by Claire Moodey nach Goethe


The Hidden Woods in the Conversation

by Husband


Spectral Findings reanimates Goethe’s science experiments and poetry as a passionate and poetic narrative essay in which colored shadows and chromatic aberrations leave gentle souls prey to the work of devil. 

A chamber performance which mingles the intimate chamber music of Franz Schubert, scientific puppetry, and romantic devilry.

Dixon Place is at 161A Chrystie Street  Btwn Rivington & Delancey  New York, NY 10002

Constructed and performed by Claire Moodey after Goethe

Musical Direction and performance by Jonah Rosenberg

Stage Direction by Maia Karo

Costumes and Screens by Abigail Llyod


Spectral Findings was first workshopped at the Observatory in February, 2012 with Maxwell Cramer, dramaturg.
