Cassie Tunick, Heather Harpham, Sabine von der Tann and Sten Rudstrøm have been by my side in the studio for at least twenty five years. They were and continue to be stalwart explorers of the Action Theater practice from the days of its raw and bumbling experimentation to itís current more cogent form. I honor and am deeply grateful for their commitment, perseverance and devotion to the Action Theater practice.
