Brett Ashley Robinson’s (she/her) work blends physical ensemble performance, drag burlesque culture, documentary theater, and clowning. In participatory experiences designed for the theater as well as site-specific, community-based events, she invites audiences to reckon with history, examine their beliefs and perspectives, and engage with imaginative Black theater. Her work Re-Enactment incorporates oral histories of people who experienced the 1985 MOVE bombing in Philadelphia and is intended to be performed at home by families, friends, congregations, and other communities. She has performed with numerous companies, including The Public Theater, Actors Theatre of Louisville, Lightning Rod Special, and is a company member of The Wilma Theater’s HotHouse ensemble and Applied Mechanics. Robinson teaches acting at the University of the Arts. She earned a BFA from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro.
