Small School presents Margaret Kemp


Join us for a talk by Margaret Kemp, actor, multidisciplinary performing artist, writer, teaching artist, and professor and chair of theatre and dance at UC Davis.

About the lecturer
Margaret Laurena Kemp trained at the Shakespeare Theatre at the George Washington University and has a BS in interdepartmental studies from the School of Speech at Northwestern University. She is also the director of creative projects and an advisory group member for the nonprofit Fitzmaurice Voice Institute as well as a master teacher and lead trainer for the Fitzmaurice Voicework Teacher Certification Program. She has performed at Arena Stage, Mark Taper Forum, Yale Repertory Theatre, South Coast Repertory, La Mama Theatre (Melbourne, Australia), Theatre of Changes (Athens, Greece), Red Pear Theatre (Antibes, France), and the Magnet Theatre (Cape Town, South Africa).

Kemp won worldwide praise for her starring role in the film Children of God. Other screen credits include the supernatural thriller Blood Bound, The Orlando Jones Show, and Commander in Chief. Her visual work has been shown in solo and group shows at Art Share L.A. and the National Art Gallery of The Bahamas. Her recent work CITE was shown at the Elaine L. Jacob Gallery in Detroit, Michigan, in 2019.

Her research explores authorship and spatial politics through performance. Within actor training environments, while specifically teaching voice, speech, movement and acting, she incorporates and recontextualizes interdisciplinary topics such as identity, movement theory, accents/dialects, contemporary and classical heightened text, solo performance, and devised theatre.
