Original music by Dan Ruffolo

Four strangers sit in the cafeteria of a German Palace filled with tourists while outside a solar eclipse is approaching. They begin a conversation that will unravel what brought them to this particular place. Part installation, part theatre, All the times I did not see Potsdam is a non-linear piece in five different languages exploring the missed opportunities in our lives and the emotional maps we build for ourselves.

L'Oréal Upstanders, international campaign against sexual harassment.

I participated in the new L'Oréal campaign to shed a light on sexual harassment with other ladies from all over the world and celebrities such as Helen Mirren.  Our crew was 100 percent female and it was truly refreshing and amazing to work with commercial director Sonia Malfa.

With a number as alarming and high as 71 percent of women being sexually harassed, we still have a long way to come. Please to see bigger corporations taking a stand. 

CHECK OUT THE VIDEO HERE

The campaign is produced by Mccann and GOODCOMPANY.

La Folie

Written with the support the CRNS and L'Institut D'Histoire des Temps Modernes (France)
Produced by the Brooklyn College Theatre Department, directed by Laura Tesman. 

'' Somewhere between the wars of yesterday and the wars of tomorrow, Karim and Kader find themselves living in a slum outside a major metropolis. Promised stable employment, education and housing, they came, along with thousands of other men, to help rebuild a city ravaged by war. Kader dreams of a better life for his two daughters and his pregnant wife; Karim, of a regular apartment "with a kitchen, bathroom, windows and linoleum on the floor" for his newly arrived wife, daughter and son.  But dreams turn to nightmares as they find themselves stuck in the mud of a world the gods of administration and history do not fully recognize. In La Folie, Wilson paints a searing portrait of lives lived on the edge, and shades a vital, lyric and very human allegory for all people and populations in transition.''

BLACK LADY THEATRE.

All the times I did not see Potsdam (full length play in development)

Written with the support of La Mousson d'Ete (France), and The Hillswick Wildlife Sanctuary ( Shetland, Scotland, UK)

''depending on your preference your can reach Potdsam by land, water or air '' , a renaissance palace in Germany, a collage of lives and visual art experience, an American architect losing her sight, a astrophysicist on his way to a job interview and a European woman buying vintage door knobs at a Flea Market. All the Times I Did Not See Potsdam is part fiction, part autobiography and dives into the temporary assemblage that is the life of three characters all trying to reach the space physical place. 

Starring: Ciara Griffin, Ugo Chukwu and Heloise Wilson.
