Beyond Screens: Playable Theatre w/ Kate Drummond & Mike Lion from Dacha Theatre
March 3, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm PST
Playable Theatre – Hosted by the Playable Theatre Project
This week’s guests are Kate Drummond & Mike Lion from Dacha Theatre.
Kate Drummond (she/her) is a Seattle-based director, producer, intimacy director, actor, and teaching artist. Kate is a co-founder and Artistic Director of Dacha Theatre, and the Education Director at Jet City Improv. She has a BA in Drama from Washington University in St Louis with focuses in acting and directing, and is a graduate of the Seattle Children’s Theatre Teaching Apprenticeship.
Kate makes work that is sweet, and funny, and heart-wrenching; the tools she reaches for most often are movement, music, whimsy, and nostalgia. Her rehearsal room is playful and radically collaborative, driven by joy, ritual, and dance breaks.
Mike Lion is a director, actor, Russian translator and (most-recently) streaming director. He is the co-Artistic Director and a founding member of Seattle-based Dacha Theatre. Mike also works as an admin assistant and improv coach at Youth Theatre Northwest. Mike specializes in physical theatre, site-specific productions and immersive work.
