‘BLOOD & SOIL’ By Rouvan Silogix
‘NNN’ Now Magazine
It was my absolute honour to play Martha in Rouvan Silogix’s modern-day parable, ‘Blood & Soil’ with Theatre ARTaud at TPM this past month. The cast was outstanding, and the writing hauntingly relevant to today’s political climate. I am so grateful to have had a platform to discuss the issues that are taking place in our country and around the world. Bonus - we got some great reviews! Check them out:

A Dream Come True!
I am so ecstatic to be on staff as an actor and teaching artist at Shakespeare In Action. I'm currently being challenged and surprised by an enthusiastic group of students reading "A Midsummer Night's Dream" and "Macbeth" for the first time. What a pleasure to see the joy on their faces as they play with the language, discover rhythm, and express themselves through text and movement. Can't wait to show their families what we've been working on in a few weeks!
