Acting Writing Workshops

Creating Characters and Crafting Stories

As a teaching artist, I embrace the worlds of historical movements and visual artists to inspire actors and writers.

The art of storytelling

The art of acting is the ability to hold a mirror in front of life and reflect its unnoticed wonders. The actor is a griot – a storyteller as ancient as the first oral societies, always recounting, reflecting and preserving the history of humankind. The actor who develops their craft with passion and integrity has an opportunity to touch hearts, influence minds, and change lives.

The playwright builds an entire universe and challenges us to learn its rules and inhabit it with our own imaginings. I teach writing that is grounded in the disruption of an inequitable canon.
