European Devised Performance Practice, MFA
I’m an MFA student in the European Devised Performance Practice program studying devised physical theatre. I’m originally from South Carolina but have been in Chicago for the past five years.
TELL US A LITTLE BIT ABOUT WHAT YOU WERE DOING BEFORE YOU CAME TO COLUMBIA.
Before Columbia, I recently completed a full-time professional training program in circus performance at Actors Gymnasium. I primarily studied aerial silks, tightwire, and partner acrobatics.
WHY DID YOU CHOOSE COLUMBIA FOR YOUR GRADUATE STUDY?
I chose to study at Columbia to be in the inaugural class of the EDPP program, which is in partnership with LISPA in Berlin, Germany. The program offers the chance to study intensively in an international setting and then utilize Columbia’s resources in creating and promoting new types of theatre.
TELL US ABOUT A PROJECT YOU’RE WORKING ON THAT YOU’RE EXCITED ABOUT.
Currently I’m excited about immersing myself in the culture of Berlin! (and hopefully learning a bit of German)
