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 she seeks to make is a resistance; it disrupts the status quo of who and what is allowed in the theatre, and incites audiences and her community to action. Her 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. Her theatre is radically inclusive, fundamentally multi-voiced, oriented towards sparking dialogue and in direct conversation with the current American state of affairs.

Miranda loves Kurt Vonnegut, ugly sweaters and pretending that they're not lactose intolerant so she can eat grilled cheese. She is 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 she sees them as part of the antiquated ideologies of normativity she wishes to dismantle. Click here for their resume.
