“Working with Awake Projects is one of the most artistically and personally formative experiences I have ever had. The process of exploration has always been something that expanded my own scope of theatricality and performance. They are champions of empowering each person they meet, and I am yet to witness any of their work that didn’t inspire me and everyone around me.”
