Reg Flowers is an artist, activist and educator, whose work is rooted in ancient shamanic, African trickster, and Brazilian Joker traditions. They use Theater of the Oppressed, Art of Hosting, Navajo Peacemaking, and other anti-oppression techniques, as the foundation of their theater-making, mediation, problem-solving, and group healing practices.

Reg began their career as a theater artist, on and off-Broadway. They are the founder of Award-winning Falconworks Theater Company in Red Hook, Brooklyn, which uses popular theater to build capacities for civic engagement and social change. They have received broad recognition, numerous awards, and citations for their community service. They are a faculty member at Pace University and a company member of Shakespeare in Detroit.

Listening to Reg, one word that comes to mind is magic. Reg’s recounting of their experiences from childhood to the present day really captures what it means to be deeply connected to flow and intuition. Reg has always embraced play and imagination as a form of magic — gathering their school peers to put on a play in elementary school to producing their own plays on the big stage as an adult. Magic for Reg is also about connecting with the ancestors and embarking on their healing journey.

Reg who also blogs as Notorious PINK, now has a home in Detroit and works with the Allied Media Project. They still have their Brooklyn roots but has found a space where their work in theater and as an artist, activist, educator and shaman can flourish on Detroit's eastside.
