Osiris Khepera
A self described Renaissance Artist with talents ranging from the written and spoken words to the visual sphere, Osiris Khepera is an accomplished actor, dancer, singer, painter, and poet. He has spent several years tending his crafts on stages, in clubs, speakeasies, basements, living rooms, and jook joints the world over, and has run in some interestingly savory underground circles. In October 2011, he received his second Black Theatre Alliance Award (BTAA) for Passing Strange (BailiwickChicago). Other US Credits include A Few Good Men Peninsula Players Theatre, Defiance and Fabulation with Next Theater Company, and many other productions with Victory Gardens Theater, the Biograph, Lookingglass Theater, Blindfaith Theater, Dog and Pony Theatre, and MPAACT. He received his first BTAA with MPAACT for his work in Relevant Hearsay: Stories From 57. His one-man show The Fag-tionary recently had its third run with the MPAACT Solo Jam series, with workings for a national premier on the horizon. His spoken word EP ‘2 Trade Blood 4 Ink’ is currently available, and he is currently writing a screenplay based on his poetry, as well as an original stage play. He attended Northern Illinois University where he studied theatre under the tutelage of the incomparable Kathryn Gately. Now, having said all that, please keep in mind that he “is an artist, and he’s sensitive about his [art].” Nam Myoho Renge Kyo. Daddy, I made you a promise. Mommy, I Love You.
