His current grant, the Differences Project, explores the various creative tensions between differing perspectives on technology and culture. He is planning an immersive performance piece (working title: "Lilith’s Bike Dream") which mashes up Moby Dick with a Sumerian fertility goddess and a series of dreams about buying a bike for his son. Kevin is a graduate of Swarthmore College (English lit.), U.C. Berkeley (Orality and Performance) and SF State (Creative Writing). His plays, including Through Shite to Shannon, Big Fun, and Feeld Play, have been produced in New York, Minneapolis, San Francisco, and Stanford.
