Genevieve Fowler is a LA and Chicago based theater director whose commitment to new plays and radically reimagined classics acts to weave together memories of the past, present and future to create liminal spaces in which our current reality is questioned and sanguine futures are dreamed on.
Genevieve’s practice revolves around the dual tracks of radically inclusive, community based work and socially minded, critiques of classics for a contemporary audience. Her latest work, a radically reimagined production of Ingmar Bergman's seminole work, Cries and Whispers, was presented in collaboration with renowned Haegum performer Jeonghyoo Joo through the Center for New Performance and Korean Arts Council. Other international production include the premiere of here comes the tide/there goes the girl at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where she plans to return with the new play, YOU OWE ME YOUR BONES.
She has worked in various capacities with The Center for New Performance, The Chicago Shakespeare Theater, Lookingglass Theater, Steppenwolf’s 1700 Theater, Chicago Dramatists, Big Bridge Consortium, Heritage Arts Company, The Special Olympics of Illinois, the senior citizen musical theater troupe Still Acting Up.
