Advanced Actor Combatant

I am a Chicago-based, multi-disciplinary theater artist. I grew up in a dance studio in Boulder, CO, and quickly branched into all forms of performance from there. I have a BA from Northwestern where I acted, danced, and choreographed, and where I was introduced to the wide worlds of stage combat and intimacy choreography. I am an Advanced Actor Combatant with the Society of American Fight Directors and an intimacy professional currently certifying with Intimacy Directors/Coordinators. I am an advocate for consent-based, collaborative processes, and I believe we can only do our deepest and best work when we feel safe, welcome and heard. I use she/her and they/them pronouns interchangeably.

Additionally, I love reading, coffee, heavy metal, and cats. Find me on Instagram @bejcac8
