When I was a kid my favorite TV shows were musicals. I wanted to marry Gene Kelly and dance like Fred Astaire. It would take me a lifetime of diverse careers as model, actress, fiber artist, farmer, Professional Dirtbag Natural Builder, writer, baker, and a couple brushes with death to heed a calling to perform Shamanic Theatre.
My husband Doni Kiffmeyer and I created OKOKOK Productions in 1994 out of a passion to inspire a Happy, Healthy Humanity in Harmony with All of Nature through storytelling, mixed media, performing arts, music, dance, practical living skills and natural building techniques.
Together we co-authored Earthbag Building ~ The Tools, Tricks and Techniques and have taught natural building skills world wide. We created and produced Vipassana ~ The Musical! A story that follows the trials and triumphs of a yuppie woman’s experience during a ten day silent Vipassana meditation course.
Our current project is the theater production Yo Mama ~ Un-canned!
A one woman show in which I share the voice of a 16 million ton pile of radio active dirt that introduced herself to me as “Yo Mama!”
Yo Mama ~ Un-canned! is scheduled for performance at Star Hall in Moab, Utah for late January and early February 2017.
My TV, film and theater credits include; Hawaii Five-o, Mary White, The Girls War (a German and Czech co-production for which I was awarded best up and coming actress at the Berlin and San Sebastian Film Festivals) Willie and Phil, Roadie, Porky’s 1, 2 and 3, I Won’t Dance, Who’s Life is it Anyway? and a bunch of theater at the Actor’s Workshop in Rome, Italy and a bunch of fun stuff with the Moab Community Theater in Moab, Utah where I have been living since 1990.
