Our Members, Fiscally Sponsored Artists, and other program participants represent a wide range of career stages and disciplines. We love them - and, as fellow artists, we're always inspired by them. With this monthly feature, we hope you'll feel the same way!
Name: Kevin Augustine
What do you do?
Actor, Sculptor, Puppeteer, Artistic Director - Lone Wolf Tribe
What are you proud of?
My tenacious spirit. Finding an artistic voice that's part archeologist and investigative journalist; a purpose that keeps me digging towards discovery-- towards unearthing a story that deserves to be seen and heard.
What inspires you?
Self-expression, challenge, choice, freedom, spontaneity, authenticity, compassion, integrity, mutuality, efficiency, discovery, creativity, beauty, equanimity, space.
What are your goals?
To tour the world with my company's first show in a new solo performance cycle: the dance/puppet hybrid, BODY CONCERT. I am also looking forward to completing the script for my 10th production (solo show) on human and animal rights: The PEOPLE Vs NATURE. This will involve a unique form of audience participation which I am eager to experiment with!
Do you have any advice for your fellow artists?
Gently embrace your creative tough times too. It's all connected so just stay open and be kind to yourself (and others). Do your best and let go of the outcome. Meditate. Broaden your valued community by leaving animals off the menu.
How does The Field help you?
The Field has been my fiscal sponsor for many, many years. They have been a valued partner in all the grant writing my company has had to do to secure production funding.
