JOSH BERKOWITZ

Josh Berkowitz is a filmmaker, playwright and mixed-media visual artist. He originally trained as an actor at the University of Michigan but quickly found a more intimate relationship with writing poetry that then led into training as a clown and ultimately became a performance artist. His work is an effort to take childhood and adolescent trauma and transmute it into song, dance and schtick as a productive form of psychodrama. He served as Co-Artistic Director of the Electric Lodge in Venice Beach, CA from 2016-2018. He currently works out of his art studio right in the heart of the Santa Fe Art District. Josh can be contacted at joshberk11@gmail.com for further inquiries into his work.
