Teaching 

 

My teaching is built upon the actor’s visceral connection to the text, affirming both the body and mind as centers of intelligence.

 

I am committed to the development of inquisitive and embodied theatre artists who will expand the boundaries of theatre performance and engage meaningfully with the pivotal issues of our time.
