She is a company member with the DC dance-music-theatre ensemble Taffety Punk Theatre Company, where she appeared most recently in the Riot Grrrls’ Othello and Antigonick & the Fragments of Sappho, and a resident artist with Cincinnati-based multimedia arts company Walterhoope, which recently released Wellspring, a new sci-fi podcast series to which Teresa contributed writing and vocal performance. Teresa’s ensemble performance and devising work has been nominated for three Helen Hayes Awards.
