“Like any birth, we arrive in a gruesome but hopeful state. A roiling alchemy of total art combining both new media and ancient modes of expression. The public square is our natural home, without which the tension between creator and unsuspecting pedestrian is lost — hence the term ‘guerrilla.’ True victory is won in the agora, not the white cube.”
The TV Schooner is a mobile marionette-style theater, built within a modified shopping cart. Using weighted hooks running through a bridge in the ceiling, Jamie is able to choreograph shows that involve the use of a variety of objects and hand-made props.
In 2018, Jamie performed in streets throughout NYC, presenting a combination of puppetry, body-based performance, mime, and dance.
The Steam Trunk Showcase
The Steam Trunk showcase is a miniature variety show featuring death-defying stunts, feats of Mentalism, live music, and stories of love & loss.
The project grew out of performances with the TV Schooner, and is basically a miniature traveling circus. Jamie has performed with the Showcase on the streets, in the subway, as well as at private events.
