About Maureen Freedman

A Designer for Performance, Maureen has worked with production teams in the Israel and abroad creating spaces and crafting characters for theatre, object theatre, opera and dance.

Some notable work includes The Exalted at BAM (Brooklyn Academy of Music) with Carl Hancock-Rux and Theo Belckmann, Anne Bogart, Directing. Collider Classroom with Dr. Christopher Emdin at Lincoln Theatre Studio. The Wolves at the Window by Toby Davis for Brits off Broadway, and several collaborations with Yael Rasooly including The House by the Lake (Israel & touring), Silence Makes Perfect (UK, Israel, France) and upcoming Burning Blue in Norway. Maureen is a Linbury Prize finalist, a Cheek by Jowl young Professional alum, a NYFA IAP (New York Foundation for the arts International Artist Program) fellow, and in May this year she and her team presented their winning design of Orfeo ed Euridice for Opera America’s L. B. Tobin Director-Designer award.

Maureen is a curious explorer who is fascinated with people and the stories they tell. So far, she has journeyed to 5 continents spending short to long periods of time living in 9 cities and passing through more. Maureen speaks 2 and a half languages and continues to pick up sporadic words from foreign TV. She’s grown up but not quite a Grownup yet. Earlier in life, she was cast as a blind mouse who ran up a clock, spent several years as a competitive swimmer, and admits to not being the most successful pianist. Sometimes she gets lost just to see if she can find her way back and who she’ll meet along the way. She treasures coincidences and maybe one day will get to Glubbdubdrib.
