Thomas Riccio talks to the Ochre House founder about his work, including his Frida Kahlo show opening this weekend.

published Saturday, November 5, 2011

In this two-part interview conducted by Thomas Riccio, Matthew Posey discusses his beginnings in Dallas, from working with Undermain Theatre to the Deep Ellum Theatre Garage, and on to his current Balanced Almond/Ochre House, which presents original works, mostly written by Posey.

Posey also talks about deconstruction and his outfit's current show, Ex Voto: The Immaculate Conceptions of Frida Kahlo. (You'll also hear a bit from Posey's dog, Walter.)

You can read a separate Q&A with Posey by Mark Lowry here

Riccio is a professor at the University of Texas at Dallas, a playwright, director, world traveler and theater-maker. In the spring of 2010, he wrote a series of essays for TheaterJones about his experience with making theater in Ethiopia in 2009. The first of those, which links to the others, is here. He also recently started his own theater company, Dead White Zombies.

With this series of interviews, Riccio is hoping to get at the idea of a Dallas or North Texas theater aesthetic. The others are below in our new AudioCasts section.
