He is currently based in the Piedmont Region of North Carolina.
CURRENT & UPCOMING PROJECTS
On August 5th Keaton began working as the Artistic Apprentice at Triad Stage in Greensboro, North Carolina, where he supports the company in various capacities, including dramaturgy, assistant directing, casting, audience engagement, and season planning. Having grown up attending shows at Triad and being profoundly impacted as an artist by the company’s productions, Keaton is thrilled to be making an eleven year dream come true and growing immensely as a storyteller and arts administrator. He served as assistant dramaturg for Triad’s season opener, Edward Albee’s Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? (directed by Preston Lane) and is currently working as the assistant director on Dracula (directed by Eleanor Holdridge). Later this fall he will begin work as dramaturg on Joe Landry’s It’s a Wonderful Life: A Live Radio Play (directed by Ann Marie Costa).
Additionally, Keaton is continuing his work as a producer on the short film Night as it completes its post-production process and prepares for online distribution later this year following an extensive, multi-continental festival run. Throughout 2018 Night was screened at the Longleaf Film Festival (Raleigh, NC), the Berkshire International Film Festival (Great Barrington & Pittsfield, MA), the Rapport Film Festival (London, UK), the Roxbury International Film Festival (Boston, MA), the Real to Reel International Film Festival (Kings Mountain, NC), the DC Black Film Festival, and the Full Bloom Film Festival (Statesville, NC).
