Shadow Show

I love working with people and believe in the power of drama and creativity to change lives. Learn to be honest, humble, curious and trustworthy to walk with people in this chaotic and challenging world.


I feel very lucky to have had the opportunity to get in touch with drama since I was a child, and let different selves be explored through roles and be seen on the stage. I hope everyone can find companionship, acceptance, and a sense of humor in drama and creativity.
