A student of the writers Charles Gaines and Kurt Vonnegut, Talen has staged experimental plays, published essays and poems in Philadelphia, New York and California. At Life On the Water, a theater in San Francisco’s Fort Mason Theater, Talen presented artists such as Spalding Gray, Mabou Mines, David Cale, B. D. Wong, Holly Hughes, William Yellow Robe, the Red Eye Collective, Reno, John Trudeau, and Danny Glover reciting the works of Langston Hughes. This experience in producing led him to the confessional monologue. After studying with the cleric Reverend Sidney Lanier, Talen invented “a new kind of American preacher.” Lanier, the cousin of Tennessee Williams and subject of the work Night of the Iguana, was familiar with the re-staging of biblical narratives.
Talen moved to New York City in 1994, where the experimental preacher began his career with the other sidewalk preachers on Times Square. Specializing in exorcisms of sweatshop companies, and opposing the Disneyfication of the neighborhood, he set up his portable pulpit at the door of the Mouse. Soon, “moral soap operas,” also called “Retail Interventions” were staged inside the chain stores, principally Disney, the GAP, Nike, and Starbucks. The preacher was soon accompanied by singers, and began staging whole “Worships” in the tradition of ritual-based interactive plays of the day such as Tony and Tina's Wedding, Late-Nite Catechism, Blue Man Group and de la Guarda. The Reverend's developing theology became the “Church of Stop Shopping,” founded on a resistance to consumerism and a defense of independent shops, community gardens and local economies.
Under the direction of Savitri D, the Reverend and Choir have toured in Europe, Africa, South America and throughout North America. William Talen has won the OBIE Award, The Dramalogue Award, The Historic Districts Council's Preservation Award (for leading demonstrations to save Manhattan's Poe House) and has been jailed more than 50 times.

Detroit Environmental Justice organizer for the Sierra Club, Andersonis working to block the Marathon Oil Refinery in Detroit fromprocessing Canadian tar sand oil.
In 2004 James 'Jimmy' Hunter (now 16) was only nine years old when he started the band, One Eyed Rhyno, for a school talent show. Although the Classic Rock and Blues band has had different backing musicians, his big sister and drummer, Elaine (19), has always been beside him.
James and Elaine were raised with the concern of care of the environment. Their first gigs included The Creek Week Celebration in Sacramento. After seeing pollution in their own community creeks and learning of the Exxon oil spill James was inspired to write ‘The Bird’ when he was nine.
Fast forward 6 years later. After seeing the horrific Gulf oil leak in 2010, One Eyed Rhyno, along with Underage Records in Marin re-recorded 'The Bird' and released it on I-Tunes. One Eyed Rhyno, in association with SCA ( Student Conservation Association), agreed that download proceeds would be donated to SCA to help fund the Gulf clean up.
This young band hopes to inspire everyone of all ages to take care of our planet now and always. As James sings, “You better save tomorrow before you lose today.”
