Bio

photo of Morgan AndersonMorgan holds a Bachelor of Arts Honors degree in Drama from Queen’s University (Kingston). Her research interests include the agency of objects in performance and the human body as object and performer. In her practical work she likes to create devised, immersive theatre experiences and most recently worked with Colliding Scopes Theatre in Kingston on a site responsive adaptation of The Yellow Wallpaper by Charlotte Perkins Gilman. Through her work with Huronia Historical Parks Morgan became interested in theories of historic interpretation and how we perform the past. She is also an avid juggler and unicyclist who is always seeking ways to incorporate those passions into her academic life.

What you like to do when you aren’t being a grad student
I currently work for the Haunted Walk of Toronto as a tour guide and my favourite past times are juggling, unicycling, people-watching, running, and exploring new, local coffee shops and ice cream parlours.
