Amanda Grace Ewing

I have spent much of my career collaborating with community driven arts organizations such as A Host of People, a Detroit-based theatre and performance company where I am a Core Ensemble Member and Production Manager, and BoxFest Detroit, a women’s directing festival where I am the Artistic Director. By day, I am the Director of the University of Michigan’s Educational Theatre Company, an applied theatre company that uses educational theatre to teach students about issues they might encounter during their college career. I work primarily as a director, dramaturg, and production manager. I have a Master of Arts from King’s College, London in Theatre & Performance Studies, am a third generation Arab American, and am based in Dearborn, MI.

Upcoming Projects:
I am the Production Manager for A Host of People. In my work with them I am dramaturging ‘Kilo Batra’, and am on the Dramaturgical team for ‘Fire in the Theatre.’ I am a certified TimeSlips facilitator and am working on a project called TeleStories with Detroit area elders. Additionally I am the 2022 Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) Theatre and Social Change Taskforce Pre Conference Planner as well as a Member at Large. I am presenting at the ATHE 2021 Conference.
