Bryan Davis interviewed me on his podcast, Preforming the Arts. We talked about writing politically minded theater, gender bending Shakespeare, the impact of Covid, and much more! Make sure to watch.
Johanna Kepler founded the interview series project Power of the Performing Arts: Uniting Artists While Apart on March 9th 2020. Her goal is to make a platform in which artists can continue to share their stories, create community through technology, and raise awareness on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting performing artists in the US and around the world. Currently over 300 artists are involved in this interview series. Johanna has interviewed performing artists, directors, choreographers and producers from on and off Broadway, regional theaters across the country, as well as major dance companies such as Martha Graham Dance Company, Hubbard Street Dance Chicago, New York City Ballet, Gibney Dance, Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater, Dance Theater of Harlem, freelance artists and more.
Proud to have "staged" my play Control.
I started writing this play after the revelations that came as a result of Christine Blasey Ford’s incredibly brave and gut wrenching testimony. But this play has become so much more than that. It has also become a play about, intersectionality, gender, race, academia, sexual orientation, and the fissures that have since formed within the feminist community. This play is also about being an ally in a political moment where many are being educated on their own biases (myself included) and how we undermine the principles we tout.
It is with great pleasure that I am inviting all of you to a night of virtual theater, featuring a diverse coalition of predominantly female actors who are all a part of the BC theater community.
I hope you pass this invitation along and watch as a community!
I am now officially a graduate of Brooklyn College, graduating with two degrees, in four years, summa cum laude. This has been such a wonderful and rewarding journal. Now, I'm trying to step forward into the working world!
Animus Anima//Anima Animus
Written by Cherry Lou Sy
Directed by Eugene Ma
Featuring Johnathan Dougan, Sauda Jackson, Rae Mizrachi, Sabra Shelly, John Teresi
Steeped in the modern mysticisms of David Bowie and Hilma af Klint, Animus Anima//Anima Animus invites the audience to experience an intimate chamber play that quickly unravels into a celestial fantasia of bodies and color. Watch two sisters struggle to sleep while shadows dance around them, uttering nonsensical absurdities while they parse what really matters to them. As the night bleeds into twilight, the ascended masters come to ask them: who are you at 3 am and what do you want?

In a politically charged, haunting interrogation of theater and the revolutionary impulse, writer-director Guillermo Calderón’s NEVA tells the story of Anton Chekhov’s widow, the actress Olga Knipper (Rae Mizrachi), who arrives in a dimly lit rehearsal room in St. Petersburg in the winter of 1905. As Olga and two other actors await the rest of the cast, they huddle together, act out scenes from their lives and muse on their art form and love—while unseen striking workers are being gunned down in the streets by the Tsarist regime. Calderón savagely examines the relationship between theater and historical context in this sharply funny yet ominous, tightly crafted ensemble work that allows a palpable terror to creep through the theater walls.
