“One to watch. A fierce imagination and a keen sense of theatre… Keep your eyes out for Bryn Kennedy.” – Lynn Slotkin, Reviewer

Bryn is a director who helps people and projects thrive by stretching concepts to their furthest creative extent. She uses conceptual direction to investigate small revolutions & reveal the cyclical nature of being human. Her super power is world-building and she is guided by her core values of authenticity, community, courage and growth. Her mission is to push Canadian content to new heights in concept, in quality and in viewership.

Bryn has been a member of Paprika Festival’s Director’s Lab with Clare Preuss, the 2021 cohort of Director’s Lab North, the 2022 Langham Directors’ Workshop at the Stratford Festival, and the 2023/24 Musical Stage Company Apprentice Director. During her season at the Stratford Festival, Bryn was honoured to receive the Jean Gascon Award for Emerging Director at the Guthrie Awards.

She is proud to now be an Artistic Associate with Director’s Lab North, programming the Lab alongside Evan Tsitsias, Leora Morris and Dr. Jill Carter. She is also a Co-Founder of the small and scrappy Theatre Born Between and a member of Pantheon Projects. As evidenced by the pictures below, Bryn believes that good directing is all about talking with your hands.
