WHO IS SHE?
Veda is a New Jersey and New York based theatre-maker, director, actor, spectator, and occasional hula-hooper. She is a theatre artist who finds herself drawn into the worlds of experimental, devised, site-specific, and physical theatre. Her work repeatedly gravitates toward the exploration of human existence (wondrously imaginative yet utterly mundane), and seeks to challenge the boundaries of solo and ensemble performance through space, rhythm, movement, sound, and clown.
“My mission is to continually define and question the relationship that the actor has to the spectator. I am presently intrigued by the intersection of actors and non-actors, and the juxtaposition of objects and artists. My curiosity is fueled by a desire to understand how movement of the body can create a conversation of the unknown.”
