In the fall of 2016, I dramaturged and directed the American premiere of Shaip Grabovci’s Njerëz Me Shpresa Të Thyera (“Men with Broken Hopes”) at SHSU. This was the Albanian-language play I had directed four years earlier in Kosovo using an interpreter. As the dramaturg for this project, I transcribed verbatim audio files (Albanian to English) and then adapted the material for our staged production.
During Fall 2012, I served as production dramaturg for SHSU’s production of the musical Spring Awakening. Feel free to check out my site at:
Outside of academia, I have worked as a production dramaturg for two professional theatres in Houston: Classical Theatre and The Ensemble Theatre.
