Contributor Bio

Cecilia Rubino
Assistant Professor of Theater

To create change, you first have to imagine the possibility. Theater demands that both the practitioner and the audience engage–right now—in the moment and in the imagination. My life’s passion is the living medium of theater. And whether I’m directing Shakespeare, Chekhov, or working with New School students at the I HAVE A DREAM After School Drama Program, I find that the theater constantly asks that we grapple with essential questions. Why we are here, what matters, and how can we collaboratively transform reality? My professional practice and my teaching have been nourished by working in an array of disciplines, as an actor, director, and writer, and as an educator. Now more than ever, it’s important to challenge ourselves—as actors do in their work—to listen, to respond, to engage in dialogue, and to transform ourselves and others.
