Brit Connors is thrilled to have landed in a space where she can see many artists building an artistic home, and where the love of theatre and art runs rampant. She believes the Inspired Acting Company will continue to be a space where artists can play and learn to play.
She holds a BFA in Acting from The University of Michigan, where she honed her craft, but also fell in love with movement. She is especially inspired by the language of movement and how we can use it to propel storytelling.
She spent several years in New York City as an actor, primarily working in independent film. While in New York she also directed, wrote, and produced. She ran a theatre company and worked closely with actor Anatol Yusef (HBO's Boardwalk Empire) for several years and worked with artists, and especially writers that continue to inspire and show up in her work today. She was lucky to have had a close working relationship and mentorship with playwright Jose Rivera, who taught her the importance of speaking your singular voice, and how to lean in to magic.
Brit was also the director at South Lyon High School for three and a half years, and felt lucky to witness young people falling in love with the transformative power of theatre.
She looks forward to continuing to build community and connection, and is thankful for her time here.
