Tere (Teresa, Terri) Harrison is a writer and performer who investigates the intersections of poetry, spoken word, and music— and devises original one woman shows with more than one woman in them.
A graduate of Naropa University’s MFA in Contemporary Performance, Tere studied with Steve Wangh (An Acrobat of the Heart, NYU Experimental Theater Wing), Wendell Beavers (founder of both Naropa University's Performance Program and NYU’s Experimental Theater Wing) and studied Mary Overlie's (originator of the Six Viewpoints Technique) approach to ensemble development and devised work composition.
At Naropa, she also studied with Barbara Dilley (founder of the Judson Church and Grand Union dance collectives), Erika Berland (Somatic Training for Actors with the Principles of Body-Mind Centering) and Ethie Friend (teaching member of the Roy Hart Theatre of France), Moises Kaufman and the Tectonic Theater Company (Moment Work), and was a featured performer in SITI Company’s world premiere production of Twenty Three Seconds About John Cage in the Atlas Theatre at UC Boulder.
She continues in their lineage of New York Post-Modern dance and performance art.
Tere recently performed Allen Ginsberg’s Howl as a duet with a stand-up bass player at the Austin Fringe Festival, then with a pianist and a room of typewriters in Boulder Colorado, home of the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics.
While in Boulder, she deconstructed Macbeth from Lady Macbeth’s point of view at three a.m. in her kitchen with a resonator guitar and harmonica.
A member of Plasticene Theatre Company, Tere devised and performed numerous works with Dexter Bullard in Chicago and New York.
She currently lives in Bellingham, Washington and creates original work for live music and spoken word.
