Chloe Hooton, Producer, Playwright, Actor
Chloe is a performer from the U.K. Who relocated to New York 4 years ago. Prior to joining Lama theatre she was involved in various Shakespeare productions. She wrote the original story "The Woman who Shed her Skin" last February in Nicaragua as part of Lama Theaters artist residency- she is thrilled that Noel MacDuffie partnered up on the project and helped transform it into a theatrical performance piece. Her first play, The Woman Who Wondered and Wandered the World, aimed at children, premiered at the Gene Frankle Theatre in 2015 and toured to various schools around New York.

We began working together with the germination of The Woman Who Shed Her Skin, and developed an intuative process that dug deeply into the material yet was respectful and creative. This seemed a good environment to make art-so we figured we had best continue to explore future creations together. We are enticed to create worlds that reflect and dive into the human condition
