Hi Jeff, I sent you an email with a reading list to your university email. So sorry for the delayed response and this may be too late for you or you may have found other recommendations, but you'll find some options in the email. With best wishes for 2015!

I think I try to approach decisions about format strategically.  I have a deep love of process-oriented approach but I've been doing this long enough that I had to admit to myself that that alone has a severely limited audience.  I try to layer my work so that there are a number of entries into the work--rather than just watching me fill my mouth with things--which may be enough for some (myself included). By including rhythm, lyrics, video, and live action I to sustain the audience through performance's simultaneous curse and miracle: duration. I think of it as incentive for them to be patient with the video element (where the process-oriented action unfolds).
