Brittany Caine is an artist, an educator, a writer, a researcher, and above all, a passionate advocate for community connection. Her work focuses on using drama-based techniques to engage young people in creative learning of various subjects, ranging from literacy to sports to performing.
She believes that theatre and drama are catalysts for growth in many forms, including socially, emotionally, and creatively. Using play-based pedagogy, Brittany works to ensure that the art form is never sacrificed, nor the learning process spared. Through her work, she aims to facilitate environments that allows participants, especially young people, to develop and define themselves, while also developing a collaborative and community-focused mindset. Brittany strives to make every opportunity a learning opportunity, and to maintain a "Yes, and" motto . She highly values transparency with those she works with and those she works for, and she seek to model that when teaching.
Brittany's work has taken her around the world: California (Theatreworks Silicon Valley, Palo Alto Children's Theatre, San Carlos Children's Theater, The Woodland School), Massachusetts (Smith College, Hampshire College, The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art), Minnesota (Minnesota Jewish Theatre Company), Israel (Hebrew University), London (Oily Cart, Rose Bruford College), Florida (Orlando Repertory Theatre, UCF, Central Florida Community Arts, Winter Park Public Library). Most recently she directed a virtual production of James and the Giant Peach.
