Daniel Ruppel

Dan Ruppel grew up exactly one block outside of Philadelphia.  He studied History and Middle Eastern Studies at McGillDaniel RuppelDaniel Ruppel University in Montréal, where he also made plays.  As {dan} of the forest, he wrote special recipes for {productions} of the forest, a theatrical confectionary, and he has developed and led theatre workshops in North America, Israel and Palestine.  He is fascinated by the performance of history, including the embodied instantiation of historical texts, the re-presentation of historical events, and events that self-consciously seek to “make” history.  He enjoys taking the moments when he’s stopped at an “ARRÊT” sign to ponder the intersection between translation, narrative, and lived experience. 

Almost all his favorite foods begin with “b.”
