Becca is obviously a well read intellect in the making - with a masters degree under her belt and a play on the way, she could potentially be the kind of person that is intimidating, stuffy or boring at best. She is not any of these things in fact she is quite the opposite - intriguing, interesting and all together a delight.

In my fever-dream between two cities, you were given to me as a student of the law who wrote strange columns in the local paper. I couldn’t have any ideas, and I could feel things only vaguely, as the factliness of myself diffused into the world or experienced through the appearance of an avatar within me. Retrospectively, I can use you for divination: you get your truck and drive me to the nearest pharmacy where they are out of Doliprane, and for the rest of the dream and even into the day I hear that beautiful word repeated over and over, one word is the lie of another, musically, like a prayer rising from the inside of the world itself
Do you go to NYU? What do you study?
I just graduated from an MA program at NYU where I studied performance studies (philosophy of performance) with some philosophy of mind, mathematical neuroscience and psychoanalysis.
What performance piece can you tell us about? I know you've done many!
I can tell you about a performance I'm about to start developing... it's a staged adaptation of excerpts from Clarice Lispector's A Breath of Life. A lot of the book is written as a dialogue between the "author" and a character the author invented named Angela Pralini - so I'm going to take the format literally and interpret the dialogue as a kind of play.
Are you a writer, a singer, a performer, a dancer, a poet? What do you do?
Yes! I do all of those things to a degree. I also do welding and metalwork.
If you were asked to bury a time capsule for someone to dig up in 300 years, what would you include?
I would honestly include a KKW beauty contour kit, a strap on and a vial of some untreatable supervirus just in case human extinction hasn't happened yet.
