Shannon Quan Iriarte
I was born and raised in the island of Guam. In May 2016, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Theatre with a focus on Theatre for Young Audiences at the University of Hawai’i at Manoa . I am particularly interested in puppetry and plan to use the skills I have been taught to help reinforce Guam's indigenous Chamorro culture and language to the people of Guam.
I am currently living in New York, expanding my knowledge for puppetry. I currently work with The Shadow Box Theatre, a children's puppetry theatre company in Brooklyn. I am also a Greeter at the Pershing Square Signature Center, providing the best customer service to our visiting patrons. I joined the Name of Bird company here in New York, being inspired exploring Michael Chekov's acting techniques.
