What is your job on this show?
What type of theater do you like most to work on?
I love working on collaborative pieces, where each person involved gets to live off of their impulses. It makes the environment of the show being created exciting, suspenseful, and interesting.
Who is more important in the theater: the actor, the playwright, or the director?
There's not one person involved in a production, from those three to the production managers and stage hands, that is more important than anyone else in the theater. You need every piece in order to create, so not one person should be valued above another.
How did you meet your fellow artists/collaborators on this show?
Another actor in the show, Cyrus, leaned over to me in class and asked me if I knew any girls interested in creating experimental theatre.
Which “S” word best describes your show: SMOOTH, SEXY, SMART, SURPRISING?
Smart, definitely smart.
How important is diversity to you in the theater you see/make?
If we as a community of artists are interested in getting our voices heard, diversity is essential. Having a multitude of views creating pieces is the only way to ensure that those coming to listen will get a variety of perspectives.
