For over 15 years Goldie E. Patrick has been passionately working, living, and building artistic collaborations in theatre. A one-stop-shop in the space where theatre is conceived and created, Goldie has a unique skill in imagining and interrogating the world of the characters and the play through her "triple threat" skills and experience as a dramaturge, director, and playwright.
With a fresh voice and perspective echoing the multilayered experiences of Black womxn and girls, Goldie brings rigor to her craft to perfectly blend with cultural ingenuity. As a bold public advocate for Black womxn and girls, she has gained international recognition for her work as founder, and Producing Artistic Director of F.R.E.S.H.H. Inc Theatre Company, for 5 years. Her work at F.R.E.S.H.H. includes the development of a unique curriculum that includes a playwriting program for early-career playwrights, culturally competent acting and devising techniques, and a series of Hip Hop Theatre curricula.
With a zealous approach to developing new theatre, Goldie has cultivated a vast culturally inclusive lens and praxis to her work. Working thoughtfully as a playwright and director to model her mentor's contribution to the canon of theater that illuminates the Black experience, she is simultaneously pushing the boundaries of form, style, and aesthetic. The unique intersection of her work as a writer, director, and cultural worker is indicative of her holistic approach to theatre-making.
