Lesley Ewen is a Theatre, Film and TV Artist

A 2005 Moffat/LIllo prize winner and two time Jessie Theatre Award nominee, Lesley  has lived in Englad, Australia and Canada, graduated from the Vancouver Playhouse Acting School under David Latham and has contributed to Vancouver’s cultural milieu since 1977.

As an artist who responds to the world via diverse media, Lesley’s created an array of theatrical/art/events, videos, music and has over 150 professional film/tv/theatre acting, directing and producing credits. She works as an wholistic dramaturge and has written 4 plays, with her latest, Camera Obscura (Love. Murder.), featured at Factory’s ’05 Crosscurrents and in PTC’s inaugural Playwright’s Colony. Assorted modes of live performance include: Shakespeare at the Bristol Old Vic and Stratford, conventional theatre with most major and many smaller theatres throughout Canada, new circus and independent live art here and in Europe.

Things I’ll bring to Story Box:

– an understanding of and an ability to support the diverse components and modes of creation within the group

– the ability to recognize and nurture things before they’ve sprouted, helping them to cultivate ground within which they can grow

– recognizing and en-couraging the quieter voices in the group being fearless
