Theodora Skipitares is an award-winning visual artist, playwright and theatre director who has been creating her works for more than 30 years. Trained as a sculptor and theater designer, she began creating personal solo performances in the late 1970’s. Gradually, she moved away from autobiography, and began to examine social and historical themes. She introduced 3-dimensional representations of herself into these performances, which she understood (later) to be puppets. She has created 24 original works.
Her visual work has been exhibited widely in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. Ms. Skipitares has worked frequently in India as a Fulbright Fellow, as well as in Vietnam, Cambodia and Korea.
