I have directed new plays, musicals, classic comedies, ensemble creations, theater for young audiences, and original works by young playwrights and theater makers.
I am currently developing The Seven Ravens Project, a theatrical adaptation of the Grimm Brothers tale “The Seven Ravens,” about a young girl's epic quest to reunite with her long-lost brothers and reverse a family curse. Her journey takes her past the edge of the world and through the cosmos, where she encounters the sun, the moon, and the stars. The Seven Ravens Project mashes up this fantastical Grimms' tale with the true, heroic, tragic and triumphant stories of contemporary child migrants and refugees across the world. Featuring a diverse, international, multilingual cast of women physical performers, and incorporating song, movement, puppetry and projections, The Seven Ravens Project sheds light on one of today's most pressing sociopolitical issues through the lenses of allegory, fantasy and play. The Seven Ravens Project is directed and conceived by Marisol Rosa-Shapiro, and co-created with the ensemble. The work has been developed through the New Victory Theater LabWorks program in NYC, at Drop Forge & Tool Creative Residency in Hudson, NY and at the Barn Arts Collective in Maine, thanks to grant funding from the Network of Ensemble Theatres.
