Meet the Bloggers: Jules Orcullo
Winter is coming, and with it comes a new team of bloggers for The Green Room! We're so excited to welcome them to the blog and to introduce them to you all this week. Get to know two new bloggers today, and click here to read previous installments of the Meet the Bloggers series, too.
Name: Jules Orcullo
What do you do outside of blogging? I’m an arts administrator, researcher and budding theatre-maker. I’m interested in phenomenological entry-points to gender, race and disabilities in performance. My first 60-minute script, Expired, is currently in development in Sydney, Australia. Besides that, I spend a lot of time riffing in echoey hallways pretending to be Tori Kelly.
Favorite musical: Dogfight by Pasek and Paul. The score is so deliciously nostalgic, it has the ability to take you back (oh, take you back) to memories you never had.
What are you interested in blogging about this winter? I’m interested in international musical theatre identities and crossing cultural lines. I’ll be blogging from the UK and Australia, so if you’re a NMT fan in either country, hit me up – I'd love for our paths to cross one day!
What are your non-theater interests? I love dirt cheap flea markets, poring over Aussie literary mags, and discovering new things in feminist theory and disability studies. Oh, and spending time in any quiet library that has shiny gold desk lamps.
Favorite contemporary MT song: "Crazytown" by Ryan Scott Oliver. I imagine walking through Banksy’s Dismaland feels a lot like listening to this song. It’s a disturbing playground for the subconscious and I could listen to it for hours (whilst cradling my skull and fighting weird urges). RSO's 35MM is a real turning point, so brilliant.
