Alexandra Caprara is a multidisciplinary artist and writer from Toronto (Tkaranto), Ontario who has worked internationally as a designer, deviser, writer and director. Her work explores the intersections of unlikely things, and aims to blend form, content, and discipline in an exploratory context.
Her work often centers themes of femininity, autonomy, somatics, and queerness. These themes fuel her interest in both engaging narratives that lie on the periphery in her storytelling, and in creating work that is immersive, transformative, and often both site and societally responsive. With physical training in Lecoq and Viewpoints, her work also focuses on movement-based creation and storytelling.
Alexandra has worked across Canada alongside companies such as Electric Company Theatre, Canadian Stage, WorkMan Arts, and StarVox Entertainment. Select credits include lighting design for The Woods are Dark and Deep (Factory Theatre), the co-creation of EVREN (Edinburgh Fringe Festival), director and writer of You've Got To Be Kidney Me (Edinburgh Fringe Festival), and is the creator and curator of ThreadBare, (2020 Rendezvous with Madness Festival). She holds a BA from York University where she double majored in theatre and creative writing, and currently resides in Vancouver where she is pursuing her MFA in Interdisciplinary Arts at Simon Fraser University.
