Fellow human beings! The Queen, Kimberley Rampersad, is here on Tits and Teeth! Her incredible words are ready to flow through your ear buds and inspire you to HOLD YOUR SPACE!
Kimberley is a glowing force in this industry, who was recently appointed as the new Associate Artist Direct of the Shaw Festival. We chat with Kimberley about how she ‘schedules her balance’, the stories she wants to tell as a director, and a little bit about Gypsy, scheduled to play at the Shaw Festival, which she is both directing and choreographing. We also got to have a beautiful catch up with Kimberley because we had recorded her interview ‘pre-pandemic’. We needed to hear how Kim is continuing to inspire and lead while staying safely in her home, and in true Kim Rampersad fashion, she hit us with some incredible advice for this moment in time.
Kimberley proudly hails from Winnipeg Manitoba and has been an asset to theatres all across Canada. Kimberley has been a performer in Holiday Inn, Grand Hotel, Pygmalion, Sweet Charity (Shaw Festival) Crazy For You, Man of La Mancha (Stratford Festival), has Directed The Colour Purple (Neptune Theatre, Citadel/MRTC) Man and Superman, O’Flaherty V.C. (Shaw Festival) How Black Mothers Say I Love You (GCTC), and Choreographed Matilda (RMTC/Citadel/Arts Club) Bittergirl (RMTC) and Seussical (Young Peoples Theatre). What we’re saying is…she does it all, and she does it all at the highest level.
Come hang with us, grab a drink, and let’s all get through this together.
