James Scruggs is a writer, performer and arts administrator, creates large scale, multi-media, topical theatrical work usually focusing on race, and gender politics.

 

He has received several grants and was recently awarded a 2016 NJSCA Fellowship for artistic excellence, a 2016 Creative Capital Grant and a 2015 MAP Grant to write and produce a piece, 3/Fifths, which will be performed by a large cast in two spaces at 3LD Art & Technology Center, NYC in 2017. It explores racism and mass incarceration. In 2005, when the phenomenon of unarmed black men being killed by policeman began rising, Scruggs wrote, performed, and was video designer for Disposable Men produced by HERE Arts Center, NYC. It was his solo work that examined the uncanny similarities that Hollywood monsters and African American men share; the unfounded fear of, and the creative ways they are killed. Disposable Men went on to be presented in Philadelphia, Boston, and Atlanta. He decided to use DM as a seed for 3/5 which will be an up close radically interactive investigation of the historic whorl African Americans are caught up in: the historical slavery-emancipation-black codes loop to the more contemporary incarceration-decarceration- felon box loop.

 

He has gained valuable experience making ambitious experi- mental theatrical work at 3LD Art & Technology Center. Deepest Man, a work he wrote and produced in 2014 exploring free-diving as a cure for grief, used a 40' Holographic Projection Surface, allowing underwater images to appear to float in front of the actors. He is currently a curator and Associate Artistic Director at 3LD and works freelance at The Field, NYC as a facilitator for peer to peer critical feedback workshops for artists. Scruggs has a BFA in Film from SVA in NYC, and was also the recipient of a Franklyn Furnace Grant, an Edith Lutyens and Norman Bel Geddes Design Enhancement Grant, and an Innovative Theater Award for Outstanding Solo Performance for Disposable Men.
