I'm super excited to have Aimee Greenberg on the show today. Aimee's a true New Yorker, who's worked with some of the best teachers in the business like Sanford Meisner, Wynn Handman, and Stella Adler. She's got some serious Off-Broadway creds, having cut her teeth at La Mama, Etc., Theatre for the New City, and The Medicine Show Theatre.
Aimee's collaborated with some big names in the industry too, like Grotowski, Augusto Boal, and Guillermo Gentile. She's also raked in quite a few prestigious awards and fellowships like The Asian Cultural Council Fellowship, The Los Angeles Endowment, The Los Angeles Women's Foundation Award, Seattle Original Works, and the Susan B. Komen Award.
With her wealth of knowledge and experience, Aimee's been teaching performance technique, writing, directing, theatre, and film studies at international conservatories and universities like JAMU, UCSD, CSUSM, SDSU, and CSLA.
Let's get into it as we talk to Aimee about her career, experiences working with theatre icons, and what she thinks about the industry today! _________________
