My three-part essay, “Performing the Real,” is out on the Peabody Essex Museum’s website for their forthcoming exhibit Playtime. I had the pleasure of consulting on Playtime last year. The essay explores larp, how larp uses alibi, and the differences between theater and larp.


Here is where you can find part 1, part 2, and part 3.

“The Amazons, a mythological tribe of warrior women, cut off their right breasts so they could better draw their bows, exchanging femininity for fearsomeness on the field of battle. They’re even named for their breastlessness—a common derivation suggests it comes from the Greek a (without) mazos (breast).”

“Margaret could not reply. Was he incredibly stupid, or did he understand her better than she understood herself?”
