Subrole:Living theatre artists
I came to New York four years ago to be an Actor and Teaching Artist. Fast forward, I have established myself as a teacher, working for an amazing company, IDEAS, and have had the opportunity to work with students with multiple disabilities along with other populations. Last year, I took a class with Diaan Ainslee. I changed; I trusted my instincts, I was able to work in the moment, accept my feelings for what they were, and allow them to inform my work. I started to go on more auditions, I worked with a group of my peers and did two Columbia University shows. I landed a role in the longest running off off-broadway play, where I gained new perspectives on NYC theatre. I became connected with artists in my neighborhood, brainstormed creating an after-school theatre program. I heard Judith Malina speak of her passion for theatre, and the potential it has to make changes, if the actors have something to say. Soon after, I participated in a Master Lab with Olympia Dukakis. I felt so passionate being on stage, so nervous, so vulnerable, almost every exercise was full of tears. I am at the point where I feel this is what I need to be doing. I have a voice, and I am actor. I am feeling really passionate about my art again, and so excited to be at this point, and even more excited to be in the upcoming HISTORY OF THE WORLD!
