1) What is your hometown?
2) What is your dream role?
3) When was the last time you contributed to a campaign and how did it make you feel?
We then asked them to craft a little blog post about what brought them to The Seeing Place and why it means so much to them. We hope you enjoy getting to know our ensemble!
"ENSEMBLE EQUALS TRUST" BY CARLA BRANDBERG
The stage lights are bright and warm; people gathered in the darkened theatre to watch a writer’s story. A story that can inform, move, educate, enlighten, entertain... shared by the actors. You may laugh, you may cry, you may see yourself or others... you may be moved to make a change... you may learn.
Energy flowing between actors and audience - an interdependent relationship - human beings sharing with human beings together in that special place, the theatre. It truly is magical.
At the age of 20 I first experienced the unique nature of working in an ensemble – the trust that is inherent allowing the freedom to fail as well as to soar. I also learned about the quality of work that can only come from training and working together in such a way. The experience has stayed with me all my life and has served as the one to which I measure all others.
To bring high quality works of importance and relevance to New York City theatregoers and to be a part of a company committed to doing so is an honor. To be a member of an ensemble with the level of dedication, artistry, skill, attention to the craft, professionalism and talent of The Seeing Place is to be certain that when our work is presented – when the house lights go down and the stage lights come up – the audience will share in the magic of The Seeing Place.
1. Hometown: St. Louis, Missouri.
2. Dream Role: Gosh, one dream role? If I had to pick just one it would be Lorraine in A Lie of the Mind by Sam Shepard.
3. Last time I gave: Covenant Ballet Theatre of Brooklyn. To know that I helped in keeping the mission of this fine school and everything it offers alive makes me feel awfully good.
