ABOUT

 

Aubrey Schwartz is a theatrical designer and sculptor based in Santa Fe, NM.

 

Aubrey is a New Orleans native with a love for all things theatre. Growing up in a vibrant and expressive culture that revels in costumes and masks strongly influenced Aubrey at an early age. Making costumes and putting on a show came as naturally as walking. She first began her studies in theatre at the age of seven when she was accepted into the Talented Art Progam's theatre performance department. She continued to study and act in TAP productions and in community theatre through highschool. It wasn't until her studies at Louisiana State University that she discovered her true love lie behind the scenes in theatrical design. Over the past 15+ years, Aubrey has made a name for herself as a theatre designer, film designer, puppeteer, actor, and installation artist across several contemporary visual and performing arts, including plays, operas, dance recitals, film, and installation art . Her creations have travelled across Louisiana, Illinois, Florida, Texas, North Carolina, New Mexico, Nevada, and Colorado. She is an active member of the Krewe of Motha Roux art collective, the Women's Caucus for the Arts, the Meow Wolf art collective, and the Santa Fe Shakespeare Society.

 

Aubrey sees each new project as an opportunity to learn something about humanity and herself. She loves taking on new challenges in the form of mask, costume, set, and artistic design. She never limits herself to one medium or mode of thinking and thrives on the collaborative process that the theatre and immersive installation provides. She enjoys sharing her love of theatre and art through teaching children and adults alike the art form of mask sculpting, puppet building, and movement through mask work. If you are interested in collaborating on a theatrical production, would like a custom designed mask, or would like to hold a workshop on mask construction, mask performance, art instruction, or puppeteering at your school please email AUBREYSCHWARTZDESIGNS@YAHOO.COM.
