MARIDEE SLATER is a director, performer, and writer with a penchant for Rock & Roll. She has her MFA in Directing from Columbia University. She comes from the desert. Her name means "of the sea". That irony is not lost on her. Or wasted. Recent projects run the gamut in terms of genre: 5150: a playlist on love and disaster as part of F!ckFest at The Brick, The Tooth of Crime by Sam Shepard, with original music by Jillie Mae Eddy and Sam Gelband, You've Been Tartuffed (Lickety Split, Off-Broadway), Song of the Sea ((Dream)Play, Jillie Mae Eddy), SIRENS (devised with writings from Tabia Lau, Matthew Minnicino, Diane Nora, and Laura Zlatos, music by Jillie Mae Eddy), A Seagull (adapted from Chekhov's classic by Matthew Minnicino), among others. She just tried her hand at producing with Jillie Mae Eddy's The Boys Are Angry at the NYC Fringe Festival.
