My work exposes the shape-shifting quality of racism in theater, and provides a framework for theater organizational culture to transform to fully inclusive and anti-racist through the use of conscientious theatre training. 

I believe unceasingly that our collective liberation is tied to one another and the way forward is together.   

My workshops and related offerings are taught through my unique perspective as an actor, director, and facilitator.


Each workshop is designed to be an engaging mixture of theatre games, anti-racist theory, self-reflection and collaborative exercises that model for participants what anti-racist theatre looks like through conscientious theatre training.  


My workshops are based in holistic practice* and designed to meet the needs of your organization.  The typical length of workshops range from 3 hours to several days.


* Education with a holistic perspective is concerned with the development of every person's intellectual, emotional, social, physical, artistic, creative and spiritual potentials. It seeks to engage students in the teaching/learning process and encourages personal and collective responsibility. ( sourced from Google)

Anti-Racist Theater Training


A.R.T. is my unique approach which blends anti-racist theory, social justice, collectivism, healing justice and theatre exercises for an embodied understanding of racism and our agency to become anti-racist. 

In this two part six hour course I offer participants the tools to craft their own unique anti-racist theatre ethos and delve into the three core principles of anti-racist theatre: harm reduction, harm prevention and relationship repair. 

Participants will be guided through self reflection exercises designed to strengthen their analysis of their position, power, privilege and begin to uproot their racist practices, policies, and protocols.
