Theresa is from Manhattan, KS and got her degree from The University of Kansas. While in High School, Theresa participated in the Experimental Theatre Workshop, created for High School students by the head of the philosophy department at Kansas State University, Jim Hamilton. She also collaborated for the first time with Harrison David Rivers, with whom she still works. While at The University of Kansas, Theresa was heavily influenced by professors Mary Karen Dahl, Patricia Ybarra, Mechele Leon, and Ron Willis. She also worked on shows with Matt Hislope and Josh Meyer (now of Rubber Rep in Austin, TX), who continue to be a massive influence. Upon moving to New York in 2004, she plunged into 8 months with Richard Foreman, performing in The Gods Are Pounding My Head . Along with Mister Foreman, Jeff M. Jones, Matthew Maguire, Judith Malina, Hanon Reznikov, Barbara Vann, Ellie Covan, Jeff Stark, and Morgan von prelle Pecelli have been mentors, guides, friends, and colleagues. Theresa wrote several plays while in KS, but since moving to NY and starting Title:Point Productions (originally with Samara Naeymi and currently with Ryan William Downey), she has written and directed 3 full productions and a multitude of short weird plays and events, with 4 plays currently in the works. Theresa performs and builds sets from time to time, especially if it seems particularly terrifying to do so. Beyond working within Title:Point, Theresa has created plays, events, and installations with Jeff Stark, Secret Parks, Lost Horizons Night Market, Harrison David Rivers, Buran Theatre Company, BE Theatre Company, Sarah Graalman, and Amy von Harrington. Title:Point has received funding from The Mental Insight Foundation and The Puffin Foundation. Theresa just finished working on Buran Theater Company's Nightmares. Title:Point Productions is now the resident theatre folk in Silent Barn.
