Hi there! My name is Alex Coulombe and I’ve been in love with theatre ever since my mom told me I wasn’t allowed to play soccer anymore and had to find a different after-school activity. While I’ve always loved acting, I’ve found myself most satisfied in writing– something to do with watching my words brought to life on stage is simply intoxicating. I wrote my first play, La Salle d’Or, in high school as part of a one-act festival traditionally reserved for students directing established works.

 

At Syracuse University, Danton Spina, Ian Nicholson, and I founded the Warehouse Architecture Theatre (WhAT)– a theatrical outlet for architecture students (though it has since expanded to all non-drama majors). Through WhAT, I’ve had my plays A Public Affair, Mr. Nice Guy, Fresh Air (now ‘How to Kill a Bloodthirsty Hermit‘), and Le Salty Dream all performed. I’ve also ventured into Set-Design for other theatre groups, taking on West Side Story, Lobby Hero, and Equus. Though I’m professionally an ‘architect’ nowadays, I still write when I can and submit to competitions. A shorter version of Le Salty Dream, entitled “Kiosked!” was recently performed by The Working Theatre Collective over in Portland, Oregon.

 

I am also a founding member of Overlap Live!, a new group that utilizes the diverse scope of creative fields for their interdisciplinary potential. I was a producer for the original play, Supergo by Danton Spina, for the 2011 Philadelphia Fringe Festival, performed at both the World Cafe Live, and the Annex Arts Garage.
