Devising and Solo Performance

As a child, I would skip around my living room, conjuring up colorful images of worlds in which elements of the absurd felt natural and emotional vulnerability was admired. When I was cast in a Contemporary Theatre Major devised production of Eugene Ionesco’s The Bald Soprano (directed by David R. Gammons), I found my people. Collaborating with an ensemble of actors to produce something that was purely ours was life-changing. I realized that those worlds I imagined as a child COULD come to life! When I devise, I create worlds. I find beauty in the details and complexities of my characters. I write with a sense of gravitas and pull great inspiration from Greco-Roman epics, strong women throughout history and Shakespeare. I love to play (with my ensemble and the audience!) and the more absurd something is, the better!
