IMPROBABLE STAGE COMPANY'S 5th ANNIVERSARY BENEFIT PERFORMANCE OF BOX
Every BOX has six sides, twelve edges, and eight corners. It is consistent. It is what's expected. It does not change.

Just finished this Benefit Performance at our annual residence at the IRT Theatre in the West Village.

Aside from crews, I performed in the very first WTF Live sketch show, and three apprentice directed productions!
ONE YEAR LEASE THEATRE COMPANY - GREECE I am a changed artist after spending a month in the remote mountain village of Papingo, Greece with the One Year Lease Theatre Company as an apprentice in residency. This program exposed me to a variety of training methods including Suzuki, Viewpoints, Lecoq, Meisner, improvisation, and Feldenkrais. OYL promotes an understanding of ensemble work while simultaneously encouraging each artist to further develop their individual voice. We spent our final week touring A Midsummer Night's Dream around the local villages of Northern Greece, where I got to play a dream role of mine, Hermia..
IMPROBABLE STAGE COMPANY
After performing in my first movement-theatre based production of Listen... with the Improbable Stage Company, a non-for-profit, multigenerational theatre company based in New York City, I was offered a position and am now a proud member of the Improbable Stage family!

We are currently in development of a devised piece exploring human connections and the lack thereof to the cycles of the universe in the context of cyclical patterns, the classical elements, and time.
