What is your name and where are you from?
My name is Kimber Lee, I am from all over. I was born in South Korea. I grew up in Idaho. Then, I lived in Seattle for a long time. I was in San Diego, and then, I was in Austin, Texas for grad school. Now, I’m in New York.
What are you working on while at the farm?
I wasn’t sure what I was going to do when I came up here. I’ve been in a bit of a writing slump. There has been an idea rolling around my head for five or six months, which is on the shorter end of my usual gestation cycle. It just kept popping up, so I’m playing around with some scenes. I think right now I’ve got about twenty two pages. I’m just playing with it. It’s nice to have the space to do that.
Where have you been spending most of your time here at SPACE?
It has been split evenly because the meal times go on for a little bit. I like to stay after food and continue conversations with people. Then, on my own time, I’ve been staying in my room. There are so many beautiful locations around the farm, but the room I’m in has a gorgeous view of the trees and the grounds. Also, I can see where the dinner table is. I keep an eye on it, like “Oh, they’re sitting at the table, now dinner is coming.” It has been a really nice place to work.
What’s up next for the project and life after SPACE?
I have rewrites I need to do for a play that was workshopped about a month and a half ago. I have a couple of commissions, and a few housekeeping, steady moving-forward-kind-of-things.
If you were reincarnated as a farm animal which animal would you be and why?
I think I might be a goat. Goats eat a lot and aren’t too picky about what they eat. They are very curious animals. They do their own thing.
