Creative Work

Fidget

Premiered 2023 as a part of Chicago Puppet Lab (Work In Progress)

“Fidget” is a puppet show involving large scale hands discovering their form, purpose in a world previously unknown to them. As the hands become more familiar with their surroundings and each other, the results are silly, captivating, and volatile.

The show is a creative collaboration between myself and Jacky Kelsey, still in development. Together we wrote the initial story and fabricated the puppets and set pieces. Music was composed by myself in collaboration with Jordan Paine on Ableton Live.

Perennial Growth

Premiered 2018 at St. Louis Fringe Festival
Winner of the Creative Interpretation Award

Using music & movement, Perennial Growth is the story of a plant bred to reverse climate change that evolves beyond control, forever altering life on Earth.

I co-directed and produced Perennial Growth in collaboration with Lana Dvorak and my sister Madelyn Boyne. I also acted as music director and composer of the show, in addition to playing trumpet, trombone, and tuba in the pit ensemble.
