Eppchez! is a theater artist, musician, designer, and poet. Eir work follows Quaker practice and eir lived liminal experience as a transexual, non-binary Jewish/Cuban mongrel.
In 2012, Eppchez started Alma's Engine; a process focused production company/creative ministry developing eir new work across a variety of performance genera. A generator, spreading whimsical and earnest dis-ease to interrupt stuck conversations with truthiness. Alma’s Engine has produced 6 new works in the past 6 years, retracing many kinds of erasures from the emotion of economies motivated by scarcity, to quotidian environmental degradation, to the functions and effects of Whiteness, to historical gender nonconformity.
Eppchez! uses puppet making as a tool of sexual self-determination to approach gender euphoria in the ongoing search for authentic presentation. Ey founded Darb Garb in 2016 as a home for non-binary intimate design; a creative technology helping non-binary people claim and honor themselves.
