Ensemble and solo performance are the two poles of Phil’s theatre work. He finds that each pole supports and enlivens the other. In his work with Ragged Wing Ensemble he has appeared in The Tempest, Persephone’s Roots and Open. He has also appeared in productions with other Bay Area companies, including as Henry Drummond In Novato Theatre Company’s Inherit the Wind. In addition to storytelling that ranges from the Brothers Grimm to California Indian mythology, he has performed his solo works: The Wrath of Achilles, The Gospel of Mark and Beowulf (his own translation) in the San Francisco Bay Area, Los Angeles, New York and Great Britain (Beowulf at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2008). He is delighted and honored to be a core artist with Ragged Wing Ensemble and looks forward with great anticipation to the coming year.
