Miranda (she/they) is interested in work that dismantles the antiquated ideology of the white, cis, straight, male, able-bodied, middle class individual as the stand in for ‘universal’. The theater they seek to make is a resistance; it disrupts the status quo of who and what is allowed in the theatre, and incites audiences and their community to action. Their approach takes classical, devised, adapted and new texts, incorporating technology, nontraditional casting, mixed media, dance, and more in the pursuit of a unique, interdisciplinary theatre. Their theatre is radically inclusive, fundamentally multi-voiced, oriented towards sparking dialogue and in direct conversation with the current American state of affairs.
They are a Princess Grace Award/Honoraria-winning writer, director and deviser of performance originally from Boston. Their recent projects include EVERYBODY at Sarah Lawrence College, IN THE PENAL COLONY at Next Door @ NYTW, MONDO TRAGIC at The National Black Theater, EROTOPHOBIA at Fordham University, and ECLIPSED at Dartmouth College where they co-taught Contemporary Theater. They are an Associate Artist at Roundabout Theatre Company, Resident Director at The Tank, a New Georges Affiliate Artist and 2019 Audrey Resident, a Space on Ryder Farm 2019 Creative Resident, member of the Lincoln Center Theatre Directors Lab, the Wingspace Mentorship Program, a 2019/20 New York Theatre Workshop 2050 Directing Fellow, a Manhattan Theatre Club Directing Fellow, and a former Allen Lee Hughes Directing Fellow at Arena Stage. Miranda is a graduate of Wesleyan University where they double majored in German Studies and Theater and were awarded the Rachel Henderson Theater Prize in Directing.
Miranda loves Kurt Vonnegut, ugly sweaters and pretending that they're not lactose intolerant so they can eat grilled cheese. They are an aspiring florist, an avid player of Settlers of Catan and pretty good at driving stick shift. Miranda also has a personal vendetta against capitalized letters, as they see them as part of the antiquated ideologies of normativity they wish to dismantle. Click here for their resume.
