Bodies in space in real time.
This is theatre.
I am a freelance theatre director, deviser, educator and playwright.
As a theatre maker, I create work for the stage that is grounded in collective creation, heightened physicality, and deep curiosity about the sensory potential of live performance.
My specialty is devised theatre, but I love working with extant scripts and new plays as well.
In all my work I emphasize embodiment, both for myself and for the performers. I believe that the discipline of being physically, energetically, and mentally present is vital to creating meaningful live performance that actually reaches audience members.
I am also an advocate and organizer for diversity and gender parity in the performing arts. I chair the Southeastern Theatre Conference Women+ in Theatre Committee and serve as the Director of Education, Outreach, & Engagement for the Women's Theatre Festival.
