Playwright Heidi Kraay examines the connection between brain and body, seeking empathy with fractured characters. Writing across disciplines and training in diverse theater vocabularies gives her tools to live better making art. Her plays, including How To Hide Your Monster, Rajpurr: Tale of a Tiger, New Eden, DIRT (co-devised), Kilgore, CloudMelt and Ways Not to Drown, have recently been presented in Boise, regionally and in NYC through Boise Contemporary Theater, the National Winter Playwrights Retreat & Workshop, id Theater, Seven Devils Playwrights Conference, Campfire Theatre Festival, 8 in 48 Idaho and HomeGrown Theatre. Heidi is a founding artistic associate for Migration Theory, a physical art company (for which she co-devised SuperSecretSiteSpecificSomething in 2015) working on their 2018 production of small matters. Heidi holds an MFA in Creative Inquiry, Interdisciplinary Arts from California Institute of Integral Studies and is a member of the Dramatists Guild of America.
