Becca Wolff is a California-based director and co-founder of Tilted Field Productions. She explores the intersection of the theatrical and the confessional, collaborating with virtuosic performer/creators to explore deeply personal material in bold new ways.
Our Country: The Antigone Project, her collaboration with Annie Saunders of Wilderness, is currently touring. It will be at the Broad Stage in Santa Monica November 9 & 10, 2019. Past presentations of Our Country include the Sibiu Festival in Romania, New York Stage & Film's Powerhouse, Summerhall @ the Edinburgh International Fringe Festival and The Public Theater as part of the Incoming! Festival at Under the Radar. The piece was commissioned by San Francisco Playhouse, and developed with crucial support from piece by piece productions and the Getty Villa.
