Annie G. Levy is a theatre maker and producing artist specializing in works concerning mythology, historical turning points, and scientific breakthroughs.

She is an educator and facilitator focused on connecting the next generation of theatre practitioners to current professional trailblazers and the dynamic conversations that make up our evolving field and art form.

Levy is a founding member of the World Wide Lab (WWL), an international director’s collective and theatre laboratory, with an emphasis on cross-cultural dialogue through experiments in co-directing and has developed and directed new work with theatre incubator warner | shaw, the Northwood Theatre Company, and various other theatres in her hometown of NYC. She has curated and line-produced live experiences that range from ongoing literary reading series to fundraising events to walk-through theatre pieces for multi-generational audiences.

As an educator, she creates community as a theatre teaching artist, teaching coach, professional development facilitator, and curriculum designer working with students from kindergarten through college. She has created and taught courses and workshops for all levels of theatre makers and theatre directors.

Her research explores the relationship between embodied cognition and physical theatre and the integration of theatre and STEM subjects with college-aged populations to create more fluid science literacy.
