Who is she?
Veda is a theater maker, actor, director, spectator, and occasional hula-hooper.
She is committed to experimenting and unlearning, and is often drawn into the worlds of devised, site-specific, and DIY theater.
Veda's work repeatedly gravitates toward bridging the quotidian with the extraordinary—seeking to challenge the boundaries of solo and ensemble performance by breaking barriers between spectator and actor through space, movement, objects, sound, and clown.
Also, she is very queer and makes very queer art.
(Veda would like you to know that she has recently cut her long hair to free herself from the confines of the heteronormative patriarchy and has not had a chance to take new headshots because nevertheless her art and non-art are always works in progress.)
