Alexandra (she/they) is an interdisciplinary actor, writer + producer who loves experimenting with storytelling methods + possibilities. Currently, she collaborates with the Columbia University MFA Directing & Playwriting cohorts while creating her own new works. For Columbia, she was most recently seen in The Covenant, a new play by Sam Kressner, directed by Catalina Beltran. She is a founding member of Helicopter Hat, a theatre company that seeks to create inventive, devised theatre around contemporary topics.
She received her MFA in Acting from The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in England where she was awarded the Bonnie Hurren Prize for Excellence. Alexandra is now based in New York City. She has trained at LAMDA and The University of Minnesota - where she received degrees in Theatre Performance Creation, Global Environmental Sustainability, and Gender + Sexuality Studies. Her writing moves across various themes + forms and her acting explores performance and connection with an audience as a full body experience.
Alexandra is crazy about visceral stories that take us on emotional journeys, make us think in new ways + happily surprise us along the way. Their goal is to create more stories that search for joy in mess + beauty in chaos.
