WILL DAO

Academy Artist

I am excited to engage in dialogue with all the artists at Soulpepper: to learn, to unpack, and to question. I hope to interrogate who we make our theatre for and how we can recalibrate our work to reach the audiences that we want to reach. I’m interested in intergenerational exchange both in the rehearsal room and with the audience.
