Luz Lorenzana Twigg

LUZ LORENZANA TWIGG is an emerging playwright, self-producing art-generator, and lyrical poet from Santa Barbara, CA where her short works have been produced a number of times. She writes towards an integrity of tenderness and embodiment for marginalized voices and frequently uses lyrical storytelling and devised movement in her work. Her full-length, Platinum Record, was workshopped with MaArte Theatre Collective in San Diego. Her two-woman play Sinner/Saint, co-created with her frequent collaborator Danielle Draper, won a Santa Barbara Indy Award for Best Original Performance and was instrumental in creating dialogue at her conservative Christian alma mater around the intersection of faith and queerness. Her theatrical endeavors have taken her around the world, including two tours with devised Shakespeare ensemble Lit Moon Theatre Company on their recent Georgia, Armenia, and Macedonia tours. In 2018 she co-founded Roaming Theatre Collaborative and oversaw two seasons of new works and cabarets.
