Elyzabeth's Workhsops

Elyzabeth is a theater director trained in Viewpoints and Boal techniques, with a focus on classical theater. In addition to dozens of New York productions and script development workshops based on Viewpoints and Boal, she ran workshops with improv actors to help strengthen group dynamic and improve ensemble storytelling.

Her love of Shakespeare brought her to research at the Folger Library, guest lecture at New York University, and earned the Gielgud Fellowship for Classical Directors.

Elyzabeth’s favorite workshop, however, was with the congregants of St. Paul Community Baptist Church in East New York, as they prepared for the MAAFA, a performance to mark the experience of the trans-Atlantic slave trade.
