Regardless of where his work is performed, Joe commits to creating memorable experiences for collaborators and audiences alike, for the act of making and performing the work should be just as transformative as experiencing the work itself. He believes that theatre has the power to change people, whether that’s opening up to another’s perspective or seeing one’s own experience in a different light. The theatre is more than just about mirroring; it’s about understanding who we are in relation to the people around us.  Making and experiencing art is one way to seek out answers to the big questions that we have about ourselves, others, and the world around us.
