Amissa Miller is a dramaturg, writer, and educator. She is interested in explorations of identity and culture, questions of access and inclusion, and the fostering of creative and pedagogical spaces that allow participants to collaboratively construct knowledge. Her dramaturgy background is rooted in an interest in new play development, collaborating with writers and directors on developmental workshops and productions at companies like The Huntington Theatre Company, The Women's Project, Ars Nova, and the Movement Theatre Company. As a writer, her work includes the interview-theatre piece What Do You Do?, a translation of Francisco Arrivi's Vejigantes, and the short screenplay The Big Chop, a finalist at the 2014 Black Star Film Festival. She has worked in community-based arts education and administration with organizations like Wide Angle Youth Media, Opening Act New York, Maysles Institute, Brooklyn Young Mothers' Collective, and the Dwyer Cultural Center. Amissa has taught courses in theatre and communications at New York University and Bronx Community College. She is a trained Intergroup Dialogue facilitator and a member of the American Alliance for Theatre Education, Association for Theatre in Higher Education, and Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas.
