Scarlett is the Director of The Mortuary, a laboratory for life and art experiments, dedicated to unclassifiable experiences, unusual collaborations, and underserved voices. Scarlett is a member of Dead Practice, a transnational performance collective that makes multimedia collages, currently in residence at The Mortuary. She is CultureHub LA’s Artistic Associate, where she oversees artistic programming of the LA branch of five globally networked convergent media centers, in conjunction with Seoul Institute of the Arts and La MaMa E.T.C. She is the 2018 Alliance of Los Angeles Playwrights Diversity Fellow. Scarlett received her M.F.A. in Directing from California Institute of the Arts and B.A. in Visual Arts & Theatre and Performance Studies at The University of Chicago.
Her practice is a laboratory for survival and connection. As a ritual of becoming-as-being, she casts surrogates and spectres of herself through human and object ontologies. On principles of opting out of a self and contesting the boundaries of consciousness, she curates unclassifiable experiences that implicates all participants as co-conspirators in intimate exchange. She believes performance to be an act of revolution, and togetherness as a utilitarian post-utopic strategy.
