Elaine Hendriks Smith

I have 25+ years of professional experience in the performing arts as a director, administrator, designer, manager, mentor, and teacher. I am currently a Ph.D. student in Theatre and Performance Research. My academic research is centered on the intersection of theatre and anxiety and what this reveals about the surges in anxiety seen throughout society today.
