Balancing Act

Meryl (she/they) is a multi-disciplinary artist who immigrated to Canada with her family in 2012. She studied Dramatic Arts and Psychology at Brock University and had worked in new and devised pieces with several St. Catharines-based theatre and art companies. In 2019 she co-founded Tethered the Ghost Theatre Collective, and they recently held a workshop and two readings of their first original show, Healing Thread, which they are continuing to develop.

In 2020, Meryl completed the Empathy Squad training with Fixt Point Arts and Media and has since developed her passion for audio storytelling; she is now co-Creative Facilitator of the Empathy Squad program with Fixt Point. She is also excited to have joined the Balancing Act team as Associate Producer this year.

Meryl lives, works, plays, and continues to learn in the traditional territories of the Anishinaabe, the Haudenosaunee, and Attanwandaron peoples, and is devoted to developing work that tells untold truths and empowers those that are under-represented.
