War Crimes

July 2015

I had the pleasure of Assistant Directing and Vocal coaching ATYP’s show ‘War Crimes’. This role included shadowing the director during the rehearsal process and note-taking & providing feedback with the cast during the season. As vocal coach, I would run the warm up sessions and also facilitated some choral and vocal improvisational work.

Client: ATYP
Role: Assistant Director & Vocal Coach

The Details

“Set in a regional coastal town, War Crimes tells a powerful story of five disenfranchised young women who are fighting for respect, railing against authority and struggling to form an identity in a small town with limited opportunities. The relocation of an Iraqi refugee family to the town provokes a climate of hostility and tension that threatens to violently explode.”
