Director | Actor
At the end of the day, we all just want to find the place where we feel accepted, and for me, that place has always been the theatre. Sewer Rats is a collective of people who want to communicate, who want to find more people like them, and that's why I'm so proud to be one. Art is sometimes the only way that we can truly empathize with another human being, the only way we can truly understand what we cannot otherwise express.
I feel compelled to share stories that inspire audiences to change their perception of something, if only for the duration of the performance. I want to ask questions and begin conversations, specifically those that suggest the need for social change and development. I am fascinated by the idea of applying new interpretations of stories we know to create new meaning. To take a piece and use it as a vessel to promote ideas of feminism, equality and justice, we begin the conversation at the level of the production team that can extend to the audience and the community beyond. Life imitates art and at the same time, art imitates life. We become better people sometimes simply by listening to what one another has to say.
