Carlo Gozzi's "The Raven", adapted by Soft Brain Theatre Company

June 2022

Coming up this summer, I'll be performing in a new, devised adaptation of Carlo Gozzi's commedia dell'arte play The Raven, which will be the premiere production of Soft Brain Theatre Company. 


Our adaptation will include original music, choreography, puppetry, improv clowning, and more! Our ensemble is currently in rehearsals, crafting our characters as well as the unique production design of the play - all while juggling everything it takes to start a theatre company! You can learn more about SBTC and The Raven and donate to support our work at our linktree below!

Founding Member of Soft Brain Theatre Company

Spring 2022

I'm thrilled to be part of a brand new, independent theatre ensemble called Soft Brain Theatre Company! The company's focus will be on physical acting - specifically, the Italian commedia dell'arte and clowning. Our mission is to reimagine commedia dell'arte and clowning for a contemporary generation. 


We are currently in rehearsals for our premiere production of Carlo Gozzi's The Raven, which we plan to perform for NYC audiences this June. Learn more about us and donate to support our work at our linktree below!
