FLMTQ: Who have been your other influences?
ZA: Brecht, of course. And specifically his Lehrstück [learning-play, dissolving the separation of audience and actor]. And my mothers, actually. One who performed in a radical mime and storytelling troupe throughout my childhood, and the other who is a self-taught folk artist. To understand the true meaning of catharsis, I've always watched a lot of Law and Order: SVU. Macrobiotic cooking.
FLMTQ: Any new projects in the works?
ZA: I have a feature script we are trying to make happen. But apparently features take a lot of time. In the meantime I am trying out new ideas through shorts.
