Moira Cutler

Moira Cutler is a multidisciplinary theater artist based in New York. Moira has directed works by Samuel Beckett, Caryl Churchill, and Naomi Wallace, including the New York premiere of Slaughter City.  Since 2002, she has ventured into creating two original works: an ensemble piece entitled The Metameshugenahmorphosis inspired by Kafka, and a multimedia theatre piece called Sonofabitch Stew. In addition, her direction has appeared at NYC’s Dixon Place where she was a proud resident artist and premiered the piece, Asshole Differential in November 2007 and at HERE Arts Center in collaboration with choreographer, Jen Abrams.  For the past decade, Moira has also served as a resident artist at the Wow Café Theater. She also helped found the collective, Build Space, and helped construct LUNA SEA, a queer women’s theater space, both in San Francisco.  Moira has trained with some of the leading artists and institutions of the American avant-garde community, including The Ko Theater Festival, Richard Foreman, The Bread and Puppet Theater, The San Francisco Mime Troupe, A Traveling Jewish Theater, Ping Chong and Anne Bogart, and The SITI Company.  In November 2009, she made her BAM debut as a performer in the group, ‘the ten’ in Really Real with the Wally Cardona Company.  Currently, Moira is writing a play about ghosts – with both metaphorical and preternatural working title, “Crawlspace”, which she will present in the Spring as a staged reading.
