Jesse Erin Posner is a director and organizer specializing in the creation of live experiences. She conducts collaborative projects that create relationships between strangers, spark exchange and influence public space.
In the theater of the real, combining her political training with her background in art, she works with groups to collectively imagine and enact interactive public actions, such as campaigns (like Resistance School, Oak Creek Village and the Innovation School Project) and devised immersive theater / participatory performance art (like Push Thru, Now! Now! Neverland! and Ballenarca).
