Alexandra (she/they) is an interdisciplinary artist who loves exploring new mediums and theatrical possibilities. Currently, she is working with the Columbia University MFA Directing cohort while also writing a new play and her first short film.
She received her MFA in Acting at The Bristol Old Vic Theatre School in England + is based in New York City (MN local hire). They have trained at LAMDA as well as the University of Minnesota where they received undergraduate degrees in Theatre Performance Creation, Global Environmental Sustainability, and Gender + Sexuality Studies. Alexandra is a poet, lover of languages - she is fluent in Spanish and taking on a few others - will always say yes to an outdoor adventure, is unashamedly obsessed with every dog she sees, and thoroughly enjoys a good friend discussion over coffee or tea.
They are crazy about new writing (ie Alice Birch and Martyna Majok) + the companies that produce it (Royal Court and NY Theatre Workshop), Directors with unique visions (Wes Anderson and Taika Waititi) as well as visceral stories of all mediums that make us big belly laugh, feel all sorts of emotions, + leave us thinking in new ways. The focus of her personal projects comes from a fascination with the intricacies of human experience and relationships. Their goal is to create stories that examine how beautiful and interconnected humanity is, especially through the mess and chaos.
