Siena Yusi (she/her)

I am a stage manager, theatre maker, and arts educator who is passionate about supporting the creation of live performance that is both imaginative and intentional.

I am solution-oriented and thrive in fast-paced, collaborative environments where I can consistently anticipate the needs of a team while maintaining a highly organized, efficient, and reliable workflow. 

 

Above all, I am a person-first collaborator who values care, consistency, and communication.

 

I believe in theatre, the act of storytelling, and in our ability as theatre makers to activate our art form to bring people together, foster healing, and spark change.

Originally from Southern California, I first discovered the live performance as a dancer before falling in love with theatre and storytelling as a student at The Laguna Playhouse Youth Theatre Conservatory. It was through this program that I first witnessed and felt the power of communal storytelling - and there was no turning back! 

 

I began working in regional theaters as a performer, but soon discovered a strong affinity for stage management. I attended New York University, Tisch School of the Arts where, in order to cultivate a holistic approach to my work, I continued to pursue experiences in a multitude of theatrical roles.

 

Driven by my belief in purposeful and intentional art-making, I also pursued training in the fields of applied theatre, psychology, and education. I graduated summa cum laude with a BFA in Drama and minors in Applied Theatre, Social Work, and Child and Adolescent Mental Health Studies, all of which continuously inform and guide my artistic endeavors.

I have now had the opportunity to collaborate with institutions such as The Play Company, Waterwell, Noor Theater, The Hearth, Mabou Mines, Abrons Arts Center, Ars Nova, The Brick, 59E59 Theaters, Parallel Exit, Playwrights Horizons Downtown, and Columbia University, among others. It is my honor to continuously support the development of vibrant and impactful new works and live performances throughout NYC. 

When not at the rehearsal studio or theater, you can find me with my wonderful dog, Cali, or zeroing in on the largest puzzle I can find!
