ARTISTIC STATEMENT/ABOUT ME
Hi! My name is Lily, and I use any pronouns! I am a multi-hyphenate creator. I seldom meet an area of the craft I haven't tried, and I enjoy most of the ones I have! Primarily, I identify as a director & actor, but overall: I am an artist who is passionate about new and contemporary work. The projects that I pursue are provocative, polarizing, and act as a catalyst towards extensive conversation and/or debate. Since I was young, I have been interested in picking up a rock, and seeing what is underneath. These days, I explore that in my work, by asking the question: what happens when we shine a light on the parts of ourselves that we try to hide?
Nothing moves me more than sound. I consistently seek out ways for music to play a significant role in each of my productions. My process is focused on accessing the deepest, ugliest human truths, which I believe can only be accessed through unconditional love, acceptance and an uncensored rehearsal room.
In 2020, Lily earned their BFA in musical theatre in Mobile, Alabama. Lily is an alum of the National Theater Institute, the Kennedy Center Directing Intensive, and the Drama League Essentials Class Series. She previously worked as a Production Intern at Hope Summer Repertory Theatre in Holland, Michigan, spent one of her favorite summers as an Education Intern at Eau Claire Children’s Theatre in Wisconsin, and spent the 2020-21 Academic Year at the Eugene O’Neill Theater Center as an NTI Apprentice.
Currently, Lily is located in Dublin, Ireland, where they are in pursuit of their M.Phil in Theatre and Performance at Trinity College. In their free time, Lily likes to read plays, craft, make tiktoks, and talk on the phone with their dad or their best friend, Isaac.
