Teresa Spencer has been making theatre in the Washington, DC area as an actor, deviser, writer, and vocal and movement coach for over a decade. Heightened form is her jam: kinetic, iambic, devised, and dissident. She last appeared in Still Life With Rocket and Mnemonic at Theater Alliance -- both productions are nominated for the 2018 Helen Hayes Award for Outstanding Ensemble. Walterhoope, a new arts organization in Cincinnati, recently premiered Too Like the Lightning, a short film based on Teresa's series of comedic love poems to street harassers in response to the #metoo movement. Stay tuned for a screening date in Washington, DC. Teresa will appear next on stage in Caucasian Chalk Circle at Constellation Theatre Company, April 15 through May 13, 2018.
