Hello friend, welcome to my website!
This little internet corner has always been difficult for me to encapsulate in an About Me Page. I find it difficult to encapsulate myself in a short biography- which is why you’ll find pages dividing my work into facets of my creativity. I am drawn to being a multidisciplinary creative as my storytelling and perspective cannot be limited to just one expression. However, you know what they say: a jack of all trades, a master of none.
I guess it’s a good thing I’ll never try to convince anyone I’m a master of anything.
I’m proud of my work and my journey, so feel free to stick around and do a little exploring ;)
“'Amy King (she/they) is a multidisciplinary performance artist originally from a small village in the prairies. Growing up she was surrounded my art and music; performing and touring with her family’s band for young children. She first wanted to grow up to be a ballerina, a singer, a librarian, a writer, a lawyer, a teacher, and then finally landing on performance artist. That is to say- all of the above. She studied and graduated from a conservatory training program at the Canadian College of Performing Arts with an emphasis on musical theatre and now lives and works on the unceded traditional territories of the xʷməθkʷəy̓əm (Musqueam), Sḵwx̱wú7mesh (Squamish), and səlilwətaɬ (Tsleil-Waututh) Nations- colonially known as Vancouver, BC.
Amy primarily works within the theatre, film, and music industry as well as a full time position as an arts administrator. Along with her acting, singing and dancing experience she is also trained in stage combat and intimacy directing, and has worked as a director, choreographer, voice actor, filmmaker, singer/songwriter, stage manager, sound and costume designer, and producer. During the pandemic she finally discovered her niche within visual arts sphere and is currently creating her first exhibit (embroidery and watercolour medium). “
