Can you describe how you go about making your work?
First I read, then I reread, then I ask questions, then I answer those questions then I just keep digging and exploring to find the most authentic and truthful place. The exploring part never stops and its my favorite part.
What’s drives you as an artist/company?
How did you begin making work?
I played Jesus in my school’s Easter play when I was in the 4th grade. Don’t know if was the part, the story, or the bedsheet that I was wearing but I got the bug.
One thing our readers might not know about you?
I can sing 7 national anthems: Canada, USA, France, United Kingdom, Italy, Israel and Russia. Not well but with a couple of drinks I could belt them all out for you!
One thing our readers might not know about your work?
I don’t want to spoil the surprise! Come see it and find out!
What do you most like about the work you will present at this year’s festival?
It gives a voice to someone who would never get one. It goes to a place that we have heard of but most of us have not heard the stories of women who come from that place. I think its important we do.
Why should audience members choose you?
Because its a moving, relevant and important story.
Have you ever performed in a fringe Festival before?
Describe your most memorable fringe Festival experience.
So far, filling out this questionnaire is high on the list. 😉
Have you ever been to Florida or Tampa before?
What do you hope to get from presenting on the Tampa Fringe?
I hope that the audience will be moved by Andrea’s story and that it will stay with them for a long time.
Describe the context of your work and where you come from?
I was born in Québec City, spent years in Ottawa and Montréal. I am French-Canadian. I’m used to 5 months of cold, bitter and harsh winter. I now live in Tampa and loving every single ray of sunshine that hits my (sunscreened) face!
Where is home and what is it like?
Home is here in Tampa. With a 5 year old, an 18 month old and a husband who’s like a third child, (Just kidding… He’s more of a teenager!) It’s crazy town in my house! Good crazy but still crazy.
Anything else you would like to say?
See you at the Fringe!
