Tara Cariaso


Tara's work as Movement Director invokes theatrical traditions from around the world and as far as centuries back in time: Commedia Dell'Arte, Clown, Mask performance, physical storytelling. Using these techniques one can amplify a play's rhythms in space and time, and deepen a player's connection to the audience. With a master's degree emphasizing Ensemble Generated Theatre works, Tara's direction reveals a way of collaborating that empowers and invigorates the actor/creator in all performers.

Some of the companies for whom Tara has created Movement Design: Mobtown Players in Baltimore, The University of Maryland Baltimore County, The Loyola Blakesfield Players, Catonsville Community College, Distilled Theatre Company and Waxing Moon Masks.
