A Collaborative Writing Project in honor of our dear friend.
(published by Culturebot.)
Over the course of this tumultuous year, we've continued to process our love for Elliot and our grief for his loss, and one way we've approached that process is through collaboration. We joined forces with several of Elliot's close artistic partners on a writing project reflecting on Elliot's work as a dramaturg, in all of its glorious complexity.
Working in concert with so many of his collaborators, getting to know Elliot's processes outside of Piehole, and engaging in a collective editing puzzle (that felt like something Elliot would have made so much easier!) has been an incredibly gratifying and healing experience. And in collecting these writings, we've uncovered what we hope will speak to folks both inside and outside of theater, those who knew Elliot and those who did not.
Special mega-thanks to everyone who contributed, and to Culturebot for publishing it. We invite you to read it and share it with people and communities with whom it might resonate.
