I am interested in collaborative work.
What does it mean to enact a persona in poetry, performance, in praxis? What mythologies shape us, and how do our lived experiences transform them? What steps can artists take toward liberation on individual, communal, and cosmic proportions? These questions are at the heart of my artistic practice, and I approach them as drag performer, director, playwright, poet, and theologian. These artistic roles all come under the umbrella of myth-maker. I am a mythopoet.
Brumberg-Kraus studied classics and theatre in their undergrad at Beloit College, and received their MA in Theology and the Arts from United Theological Seminary of the Twin Cities in 2020. Brumberg-Kraus's art and research explore queer temporality, queer and feminist myth, cosmology, ancient tragedy, theatre & spiritual formation, drag, and reception theory. They are currently working on a book project The(y)ology: Mythopoetics for Queer and Trans Liberation.
Brumberg-Kraus offers theatre/movement workshops around gender and sexuality, spiritual formation, and a Jewish form of bibliodrama called "Drashing the Body." Brumberg-Kraus is trained in conflict resolution and dialogue moderation through the Sustained Dialogue Institute.
Brumberg-Kraus also offers editing and writing consultations for creative (particularly theatre and poetry) and academic writing in the humanities.
