Yannick Trapman-O’Brien received his BA in Theater from NYU Abu Dhabi, training at The Experimental Theater Wing in New York, RADA in London, and The International Theater Workshop in Amsterdam. The process was needlessly complicated, as are most things he ascribes to and enjoys.
His experience ranges from classical work to performance actions, interactive and immersive theater, and creative research, the latter of which has brought him into collaborations with Monument Lab, where he is a Lab Manager at City Hall, and the NYU Tisch Open Arts Department, where he consults on the development of a new B.A. program.
Select past credits include training and work with Theater Mitu, Witness Relocation, the Interactive Playlab, and collaborations with Public Movement (2016) and Amalia Pica (2017) at the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. He is also a performer and member of the creative team with Cirque du Nuit, blending interactive theater and circus in unexpected places.
