Who is Trace Turner?
Trace Turner is a queer theatre director, writer, photographer, and visual storyteller from deep in the heart of Texas: Austin. Since first learning about the varied forms of theatre, Trace has always strived to find new and visually interesting ways of telling stories.
Trace has always been drawn to the visual aspect of art having first picked up a camera at the age of 10. Trace hopes to always incorporate his eye for photography into his directing/choreography work. Trace is also becoming more versed in the world of Intimacy Choreography and the possibilities, practices, and design therein.
Trace graduated from The Conservatory of Theatre Arts at Webster University in 2019 with a degree in Directing. Since beginning his training in St. Louis, Trace has had the opportunity to learn from many different directors, professors, and artists all around the U.S.
Trace hopes in his directing to continue cultivating theatrical experiences that engage the whole body and vision without alienating an audience, but enhancing the experience of the audience as well as the experience of the performers. In his writing Trace continues to strive to uncover stories from our shared history and breathe new life into them on stage.
