What is your name? Where are you from?
My name is Aleshea Harris. I came here from California but I’m an army child who grew up in many places but mostly the South.
What is the project you’re working on at SPACE?
I’m working on a play about a family dealing, in their different ways, with the grief of a woman soldier who dies in combat.
Where have you been spending most of your time at SPACE?
I've been spending most of my time in Kay Hall. I really like the common area, lighting and the temperature. And I've visited the cows and the horses, which are cute and inspiring. I’ve done a bit of meandering but mostly stayed in those places.
What’s coming up next for you and your project?
Next I’ve got to finish up this play, since it’s a commission with The Denver Center. We’ll see where it goes. And I’ve got two other plays premiering early next year: one at Soho Rep. and the other will be touring France and Belgium.
If you were reincarnated as a farm animal, which farm animal would you be and why?
I’d be a dog that politely herds sheep.
