Liisa Ivary

Director | Narrator |Trainer

Your adventure in storytelling starts here

"I believe the Director is a storyteller. My job is to ask: What two forces are in conflict? Who wins? To what effect? I bring the playwright’s words to life in a close, respectful and adventurous collaboration with the artists and creative teams. It’s critical to me to carve out a safe creative space to serve the brilliant teams I have the privilege to lead." ~ Liisa

"I love to collaborate with authors to lift the written word off the page and bring the characters and settings to vibrant life. I particularly enjoy exploring stories voicing multiple characters and breathing life into their many varied experiences. Successful storytelling for me means that my listeners are so immersed in the stories that they take the imaginative journeys right along with the characters." ~ Liisa

To educate means to lead out. As an educator, I strive to hold a safe and positive space for students to feel free to engage, discuss and explore, to take risks and, most importantly, to make personal discoveries using their own abilities for critical thinking. ~ Liisa
