About: I was drawn to the BTB playwright unit because the prospect of writing a 10-minute play truly intrigues me. Being able to receive such intentional dramaturgical support holds value to me as a theatre practitioner whose training has been mostly self-guided. With regards to my artistic process, at its core, it involves being very protective of the time and space that I have to create, altar work, and radical non-judgment.
