Holly Adams has been a Performer and Teaching Artist for many years, and loves every second of it. As a performer and SAG-AFTRA member, she divides time between film, original pieces with her physical theatre company Kakeru, audiobook narration and other Voice projects, Clowning, and typical acting gigs (mostly Shakespeare). Some favorites include Henry V, Richard II, A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Love, Loss & What I Wore onstage, films Here Alone, In The Bag, andThe Chanticleer, and narrating nature videos and audiobooks.
Holly believes that art is how we really connect to, process, and understand our world, each other, our best selves, our worst selves, our communities, our divinities, our learning, our living, our dying…
Which is why so many of her projects are about community, including the Afghan Children’s Circus in Kabul and a performance-based public-health education initiative in Balan, Haiti. In addition, Holly’s work as an artist-in-residence for schools and universities links academic and arts curricula while addressing socio-cultural challenges. Holly is a graduate of the International Dell ‘Arte School, and holds a Masters in Theatre, Education, and Social Change.
No matter what she is doing, Holly absolutely loves telling a story and bringing characters to life!
