Anya Pearson


Anya Pearson is an award-winning playwright, poet, producer, actress, and activist. A current Hodder Fellow at Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts, she is the Curator of Programming at Corporeal Writing and under commission at Portland Center Stage and Many Hats. She is constantly plotting, planning, devising, creating, imagining, and revising visions of a better, more just world. Her best production is her 9-year-old daughter, Aidee, who can be seen most nights, trying to circumvent bedtime by asking deep philosophical questions like: “When are we going to see the world? When is my life going to truly begin?”
