Hi! I'm Marissa. I like full contact origami and laughing till my sides hurt. and struggle. I'm down for a struggle. When I'm not thinking about or fighting oppression using applied theatre or teaching/practicing yoga, I'm most likely baking the most delicious chocolate chip cookies you've ever tasted. oh job stuff? I currently facilitate and direct ninth grade actors in the creation of original theatre pieces addressing social justice issues. Not unlike Robin Hood, I believe in cheap whiskey and reparations to the poor.
