Liz is a queer, mixed-race performer and theater maker based in Toronto. Since graduating from the University of Toronto, she has become particularly interested in how theatre can be used to unpack personal and cultural complexities of identity and belonging. As one of five members of Soulpepper’s 2021 Academy, Liz discovered a passion for playwriting and deepened her appreciation for collective creation.

Past performance credits include: The House of Bernarda Alba (Modern Times/ Aluna Theatre), Mi Casa de Incienso (Mala Theatre/ Soulpepper Queer Youth Cabaret), meintras tanto // 缺口 (Mala Theatre/ Rhubarb Festival), All’s Well That Ends Well (Dauntless City Theatre), Fearless (fu-GEN Theatre), Shadow Girls (Pencil Kit Productions), and Crave (Pure Carbon Theatre). She has also participated in new play development workshops with Young People’s Theatre, Tarragon, and Common Boots Theatre.
