The Story

Entertain locally; webcast globally. A year's worth of artistic events – theater, jazz, readings, workshops, movies screenings and photography – written, produced and presented by Joseph Hayes, in varied and often non-traditional spaces, streamed live on the Internet whenever possible.

Joseph Reed Hayes

With 32 productions and readings of his plays from coast to coast and in three countries since 2001, playwright, freelance writer, jazz advocate and performance artist Joseph Hayes pioneers the cause of local, sustainable art. He has written about food, travel and the arts for print and online publications for more than 17 years. As producer of the Jazz On Edge series since 2008, he has spotlighted the best of Central Florida's vibrant and creative jazz scene. In 2012 he was awarded a United Arts Professional Development Grant to create the groundbreaking House Theater Project series of live-streamed original theater works, and completed a successful Kickstarter campaign to launch the year-long 13in13 Project. His collaborations include spoken-word performances with renown composer and author David Amram, performances with jazz trumpeter Brian Groder at New York's Jazz Gallery, the Orlando International Fringe Festival, and the Digital Media Arts Center in Orlando.

"Joseph Hayes is one of the new voices that can bring the theater to new audiences. His sense of dialogue and structure, his wit and awareness of the foibles of our society and the humanism that fill the pages of his work make him a true dramatist." — David Amram
