movement director · Physical storyteller
Mark Myles Murray is a movement director and physical storyteller whose practice grows from the belief that to be alive is to be a mover. Utilizing play, he works to unlock the innate movement in all of us to create clear and precise storytelling in environments where collaboration and exploration are not only safe, but necessary.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, he has toured his one man show, CODA (Children of Deaf Adults), around the country where he received the Chicago Fringe 'Pass-Holder's Pick' Award. He is a 2019 Sokoloff Arts creative fellow and a recipient of a 2019 Forge Red Barn Residency. Mark is currently working on his certification in intimacy direction with IDC (Intimacy Directors and Coordinators). His current work is focused on how we cultivate ensemble in and outside of the rehearsal room and storytelling without the use of the spoken word. When he isn't working in theatre, Mark enjoys a good tabletop game, a good whiskey, and a good dad joke.
