034 Brian Bauman: Using Intuition to guide the story: How a Play is created

Brian Bauman is a playwright and founder of Perfect Disgrace Theater, and has been producing experimental queer plays since 2006. Bauman's writing has a cult following and is known as a "playwright's playwright." Suzan-Lori Parks says "Brian Bauman's writing is thrilling, sexy, political and rude. He's making provocative, in-your-face theatre - not for the timid, or, perhaps, just what the timid need." His work has been presented at HERE Arts Center, LaMama Galleria, The Wild Project and Collective Unconscious in NY; The Broad Art Center @ UCLA, Company of Angels Theater, Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibtions L.A.C.E., Los Angeles Theater Center, Theatre of NOTE in Los Angeles; CounterPULSE, Poets Theatre Jamboree at California College of Art and the RADAR Reading Series in San Francisco; and the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art and the Dairy Art Center in Colorado. He is a MacDowell Colony Fellow, a resident of the Radar Lab in Akumal Mexico, and holds an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts.
