Kim Weild -065

In this episode, we traveled to ArtsEmerson’s gorgeous Paramount Theatre in Boston to meet Kim Weild, director of American Moor written and performed by Keith Hamilton Cobb.  Described as an “urgent solo work that examines the experience of black men in America” American Moor is the kind of play that asks the kinds of questions that jar the soul and make us think. Raised in Westchester County, New York, Kim spent the first part of her life as a ballerina, dancing with the New York City Ballet and attending a private high school for the performing arts.  Her decision to leave the world of dance to pursue a career in theatre arts was a brave left-hand turn she remains grateful for to this day. In this interview, Kim shares the key to being a great actor, an inspiring director, a hard worker, and an effective college professor.  Her views on success and what matters most in life are worth your download. “I think kindness is a super-power” says Kim. We couldn’t agree more.   @artsemerson   @kimweild   @keithhamiltoncobb   #storybehindhersuccess    #16LifeLessons    #mydoveproductions
