Meet Carina DuMarce

Hau, mitakuyapi! Carina DuMarce is an Indigenous theatre creator and teaching artist from South Dakota. Currently based in Omaha, Carina is the Associate Director of CommUNITY Connections and continues to work as a freelance theatre artist: directing, choreographing, prop designing, stage managing, teaching, and acting.

As part of their work, Carina continues to make space for Native voices to share their culture and explore storytelling in a theatrical setting – breaking down theatrical colonial mindset one straw at a time.

Their dream is to become a consultant on Decolonizing Theater Practices and a Fight & Intimacy Choreographer.

Some of their favorite theatrical endeavors include Winnie the Pooh (as Winnie the Pooh), Darkness Like A Dream (as Hermia), The Jungle Book (as Baloo), Eurydice (Director), Cinderella: If the Shoe Fits (Director/Choreographer), A Year with Frog and Toad (Stage Manager), Disney’s The Little Mermaid (Stage Manager/Prop Designer), and Giraffes Can't Dance (as Gerald).
