Jon Keith Brunelle has performed satiric multimedia storytelling in New York for ten years. From 2004 to 2005, Jon was a resident artist at Galapagos Art Space, curating and hosting The Psychasthenia Society, a monthly program of stories, video mixes, and electronic/laptop music featuring a rotating bill of guest artists. During 2004, An Evening with The Psychasthenia Society was mounted in a Schoolhouse Roxx program at P.S. 122 with the collaboration of three dance companies. The Psychasthenia Society slimmed down to a fixed trio of Jon, video artist Daniel Vatsky, and deejay/composer Mad EP (Matt Peters) for The Nanolove Report, written by Jon and performed by the trio, enjoying a successful run at Collective: Unconscious Theatre during 2005 and 2006 (check out the Psychasthenia Society archive). Further New York appearances include Monkey Town, Dixon Place, Forward Motion Theater, Grace Exhibition Space, and 92YTribeca.
