FACULTY AND STAFF: Faculty Profiles
Marie Sevier Brown is primarily a theatre maker. However her work spans a broad spectrum of disciplines ranging from directing, writing, performing, and designing for theatre, film, performance art, and photography. Her work is largely generative and collaborative; seeking to communicate across many disciplines and—through cross-pollination of ideas and methods with other artists—she create stories that challenge, illuminate, question, and ponder the nature of the human experience.
Her most recent works include In Search of Eden, a collaboration with Boston-based artist group TRIIIBE that culminated in the creation of a multi-disciplinary exhibition shown at Boston University’s 808 Gallery in the fall of 2010. She co-created and performed The Nomadic Dream Project with originators Alison Heryer, Sonja Rainey and Emma Lawrence on the streets of Prague as part of the in The Prague Quadrennial 2011 this past June. She co-conceived and directed three productions of The Psyche Project (now re:Psyche), with playwright Jenny Connell, performer Tom Truss and the psyche ensemble. She directed the University of Texas at Austin productions of Thorton Wilder’s Our Town, Jenny Connell’s Summer People, Erica Saleh’s Split, and Diana Son’s Stop Kiss. Her work in film includes co-directing award winning short-film Unmoored with Yari Wolinsky, produced by Trillium Studios, creating short film Full as the Moon and currently she is collaborating with Trillium Studios on developing a stop-motion animation. Marie Brown lives in Boston with her husband & daughter.
