theater / performance artist

An actor, director, producer, playwright, and stage manager, Annie has a strong background in experimental theater. She was introduced to Akropolis Performance Lab in summer 2013, when she participated in physical and vocal training with APL’s Performer’s Lab, and went on to assistant direct APL’s Uncle Vanya (2014). Recent performances include Pomegranate & Ash (APL), Barn Show (Blood Ensemble), 3 Americanisms (Outsiders Inn/Seattle Fringe Festival) and her solo play, DREAMA (co-production with Pocket Theater).  Her first play, CHIMERA, recently received a premiere staged reading in the 2014 San Francisco Olympians Festival. Annie moved to Seattle from the San Francisco Bay Area, where she collaborated in various capacities with the Cutting Ball Theater (Associate Artist), FoolsFURYRagged Wing Ensemble (Core Artist), Inkblot Ensemble, San Francisco Theater Pub, and the San Francisco Olympians Festival. Annie co-directed the world premiere of Tontlawald (2012, with Paige Rogers and Laura Arrington, text by Eugenie Chan) and assistant stage managed the world premiere of …and Jesus Moonwalks the Mississippi (2010, text by Marcus Gardley) — both at the Cutting Ball Theater. As a Core Artist with Ragged Wing Ensemble, Annie performed in Time Sensitive, Maybe Baby (at the Bay One Acts Festival), and Within the Wheel (for which she also co-wrote and co-directed a site-specific performance). She has twice produced stagings of Heiner Muller’s Heart Play: in 2009 at Wesleyan University (with co-producer Rachel Silverman) and in 2013 at San Francisco Theater Pub. Originally from Southern California, Annie attended Wesleyan University (CT), where she double majored in Theater and Psychology, earning a BA with High Honors for her thesis work as Winnie in Beckett’s Happy Days.
