Date* is an award-winning digitally enhanced one-woman show conceived from nearly 300 interviews Luciann conducted with a diverse set of internet daters. It was originally curated and co-produced with the Denver Center for the Performing Arts (where it premiered in 2012), and has garnered critical and commercial success in Denver, Austin, and Scottsdale. Luciann is the primary writer/producer and performer in Date*.
Criminal Justice Work
Capitalizing on interview, story-telling and production experience, Luciann partners with Sora Digital by Jeff Fierberg to produce short, effective documentaries used at pre-litigation and sentence-mitigation phases of trial for seasoned criminal defense attorneys like Robert Driscoll. Extensions of this growing business line include work with litigation consultants to help attorneys further hone trial skill sets and, ultimately, win cases.
The Theatre Group
Luciann spent a year with residents at Brookdale Senior Living to develop an evidence-based creative process that reflects new works development best-practices, supports brain and general health in the population, and allows residents to create and perform work based on interviews with peers. The Theatre Group used interviews to devise and perform original pieces throughout the year, culminating in the development and performance of a multi-media piece about waiting for the elevators at a Senior Living Facility in partnership with The Knoebel Institute for Healthy Aging at University of Denver (The Elevator Piece was performed at the Gala opening of the Institute). As a result, Luciann has been asked to extend and lead programming at multiple Brookdale facilities.
Untitled Ex-Slave Narrative Project
Luciann is currently working on a script based on Ex-Slave narratives gathered by the WPA Writers Project between 1936-1938. The focus is on Womens’ Narratives, and primary goals are to place narratives in a context that celebrates triumph over unimaginable hardship and create dialogue around the reality of our history and what it means now.
