Anneke Reich (she/her/hers) is an educator, singer, and theater practitioner. She is currently pursuing her M. Ed. at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, and serves as the Artistic Director of Artists' Theater of Boston. Her work is guided by equity-seeking practices and youth voice, and is actively pursuing participatory action research theater methods and creating systems for accessible consent education.
She has taught and directed at several schools and theater organizations in Boston for over six years, where her focus on student voice was centered on helping students fight for social justice through gaining critical thinking and analysis skills about themselves and the world around them through the powerful process of creating theater. She recently piloted her first consent education curriculum, which resulted in a series of student- created videos about rape culture awareness and modelling healthy relationships, both for teens and adults, produced in collaboration with The Uncomfortable Conversation.
As a director, she is strongly influenced by feminist & queer theory. As an actor, credits include Bridge Rep’s Julius Caesar, Apollinaire Theater’s Blood Wedding, and Imaginary Beasts’ Lovers’ Quarrels.
