Now a resident of New York City, Drew Pisarra began performing solo works five years ago at various work-in-progress forums around Portland. His initial short pieces culminated in his evening-length work, Queer Notions. His subsequent monologue, Fickle, debuted at Portland Actor’s Conservatory and toured to Highways in Los Angeles and On the Boards in Seattle as part of their Northwest New Works series. His piece, The Gospel According to Saint Genet, was commissioned as part of the Portland Art Museum’s 1995 Biennial. Pisarra has also appeared in numerous productions with the Imago Theatre, and has collaborated with several local artists including Katherine Peterson, Linda K. Johnson, and Cynthia Ciamente. His poetry has been published in various magazines, and a collection of his short fiction entitled Public Spanking was released by Future Tense Press in 1996.
