DIRECTOR

 

 I have a deep passion for taking an idea, a scene, a situation, and expanding it into a full-fledged performance piece. This has led me to produce and direct my own productions as well as work as a show director and movement director on other projects. I believe that my multiple years as a director offer me a greater ability to see the wider scope of a production; seeing the necessity and value of choreography and performances towards the story and its characters. I value creating an artistic vision that everyone can share and influence - building collaborative and integrated productions where all departments equally empower the performances seen on stage and on screen.

MOVEMENT
DIRECTOR

Directing and supporting how characters move and behave on-screen. For "SEE", Shay worked with every level of the production from actors and stunts to the set and art departments. This work assisted in building a world that was both true and innovative. 

SHOW
DIRECTOR

Directing, coordinating and facilitating all levels of the production. With RCCL's "Fine Line", Shay directed the arc of the show, choreographed and directed all performing artists in each scene, developed music and video content, and shaped the overall experience for the audience. 

ARTISTIC
DIRECTOR

From concept to creation, Artistic Direction is taking an idea and building it into a container that can be filled with artistic content and performances. With his own company RSA, Shay has produced, directed and choreographed 5 shows that have toured nationally and internationally.
