Dori A. Robinson
THEATRE, COMMUNITY, and SOCIAL JUSTICE
I am a director, playwright, dramaturg, and educator. I seek and develop projects that explore social consciousness, personal heritage, and the difference one individual has on their community. Some of my great loves are the Oxford comma, trees, intersectional feminism, and exchanging with artistic collaborators.
With a Masters degree from New York University’s Educational Theatre program, I have been a director and experiential educator for years. As an avid teaching artist, I share my love of Shakespeare, new play development, physical theatre, political theatre, and gender in performance. Directing credits include: Silent Sky (Elliot Norton Winner for Best Production – Fringe, Flat Earth Theatre), A Bright Room Called Day, Julius Caesar (co-director), The Merchant of Venice, Die Kleinen (Parts 1 & 2), The Lion in Winter, Extremities, Flight, Pippin, James and the Giant Peach, and Peter and the Starcatcher. Dori’s original plays have been produced in New York, Chicago, and Boston, including: The Great Harvest, The Principal Stream, Name of a Woman, Six Wings to One, and most recently The Elm Tree with my company, Alight Theater Guild.
