Rose Burnett Bonczek
Director, Author, Consultant, Educator
I'm a New York based theater practitioner who has directed in NYC, regional, international and educational theatre for many years. As an educator, I developed and supervised the BFA Acting Program at Brooklyn College, CUNY and in 2018 I received the Oscar Brockett Excellence in Teaching Theatre in Higher Education Award from the Association for Theater in Higher Education. I've co-authored 3 books for Routledge Press focusing on ensemble, collaboration skills, and the impact of technology on collaborative behaviors. In 2018 I took a leap of faith and embarked on a new journey as an independent consultant.
I'm directing the US premiere of Seashell Sweetie by Canadian playwright Aurora Stewart de Pena for Voyage Theater Company on December 12, 2019. I coach actors for graduate school and professional auditions, and offer 4 week intensive acting classes. Recently, I've been a consultant for organizations such as Atlantic Theater Company, Stable Cable Lab Co., Fordham University, CNY Arts Inc. and on Nov. 23/24 I'll be an adjudicator for the annual Theater Association of New York State Festival in Rome, NY. I'm proud to be in my 15th year as the artistic director of Gi60: The International One Minute Theatre Festival: US Edition
