The performance texts I construct are maps with which to encounter aliveness. Language is only one aspect of aliveness, so for me, constructing texts-maps-ingredients for performance means composing a series of provocations, questions, and images and putting them into a performance container through bodies, movement, colour, rituals, sounds - usually with deep longing for the eternal and wielding a jagged blade pointed at imperial capitalism. If reading my plays is your only option, the best way to read my plays (or any play), is out loud so the language can hurl through your body like a pack of wild dogs.  When we meet plays out loud, with our bodies and voices in time and space, we remember live performance is a collective game of make believe we choose to play with each other. We remember that in any given moment many lives, selves, and worlds are possible.
