About

.

Elizabeth is an NYU Tisch trained theatre and performance artist: actor, producer, designer, & movement director. She delights in sudden character changes and has many times deployed a surfeit of accents and wigs to play the role various women. Her favorite projects marry challenging texts with innovative execution. As an artist, she seeks and creates intense experiences that viscerally remind performers and audiences of the fact of being alive.

 

Currently in residence with Torn Out Theater, and producing for Mined Canon, Elizabeth is also collaborating again with SHAG, a community center, erotic art gallery, sexy boutique, online magazine, & event space based in Brooklyn, where she previously served as Director of Performance Programming. Elizabeth brings variety acts to venues up and down both coasts: she emcees trivia, hosts interactive whodunits, creates immersive burlesque extravaganzas, and provides event entertainment of every and any kind. She regularly leads a variety of group workshops, and she serves as a somatic consultant for businesses and individuals. She also indulges her body interests on the regular, spending some of her time coordinating operations at Kinected, a NYC hub for movement and anatomy education, Pilates, and Functional Manual Therapy.

 

Elizabeth is passionate about books, shoes, and food. Her other interests include running cat rescue operations, re-reading Baruch Spinoza, wriggling around on the floor at contact improv or liquid motion jams, sipping fine booze and finer coffee, watching screen fiction about outer space, and one day playing Auntie Mame.
