Brooke specializes in pieces noting the humanity of all people, and bringing that to the forefront of storytelling. . Creating a whirlwind space and movement unique to the story highlights the importance of the few items chosen to be in the space; it really lets the play itself shine. ​Working simpler and / or experiential spaces allows for the audience to be swept away in the story with an ignited imagination; it's an experience only theatre can bring. Equity and inclusivity are pillars of her work, and she creates diverse, open spaces where all are welcome to tel their story.

ARTIST STATEMENT:
Ordinary people often lead extraordinary lives full of love, lust, light, and languish. It’s one of the joys of being human, finding the universal struggle in our individual experiences and recognizing, relating, and ultimately learning from that. My work strives to dive in to the human experience, exploring true stories
and real people from an artistic storytelling perspective, to slowly bring our world
​a little closer together.
