stand up

i like to write stand up about my experiences and thoughts as an anxious human being

improvised theatre

i have experienced the most profound joy when performing in some crazy experimental shows with some of the most talented and hilarious improvisers in the city. it has shaped me as a performer and as a creator

i have been performing improv in different groups since 2011

clown

Maarit + Kaitlin is a clown collaboration with Kaitlin Kaufman. 

it is about two women at the prime of life who are trapped in a never-ending cycle of loneliness.

 

our show Am I The Only One? is a journey to finding laughter through deep pain.

the show is a three-act genre-bending theatrical mash-up of naturalism, clown, grotesque and the absurd.

 

we have performed at Dixon Place and at the New Ohio Theatre as a part of their Fridays on Ice series (NYC).
