Theresa Columbus is a performance artist and playwright and filmmaker. For the last 15 years she has performed extensively in Baltimore and Milwaukee, and has toured the country primarily performing poetic plays. Plays where people talk in a way that addresses becoming close to each other or to others, or talk in interesting poems to each other, or think and talk about the way things seem to be, and occasionally burst into experimental singing and choreography. She has made, co-directed, or acted in many film and video projects, most of which think about the act of performance and how this translates into connections with each other, with an audience, and sometimes with technology. She also collectively started and ran an experimental performance space called Darling Hall for 5 years in Milwaukee, WI. She must admit that it is strange writing about herself as "she," but that referring to herself as "I" in a "bio" felt off.
