Kristen Lynch

Brooklyn Acting Lab’s Director and Artistic Director, speaks on the power of acting, for both young and adult artists. 

Sharing stories is empowering. Living in one’s body and connecting to the body heightens our daily experiences. Feeling connected to other humans on a deeper, creative level makes life more fulfilling by fostering understanding and dialogue.

Understanding and imagining another person’s circumstances and exploring character builds character and understanding, maybe even empathy. Making meaningful theater makes us more courageous. Theater can serve as a bridge between gaps… generational, cultural, economic, political.

Theater is a celebration of the human existence and condition.
