Danica Charlie is a graduate at the Canadian College of Performing Arts, where she attained her three-year Applied Performing Arts Diploma. She finished her education performing as part of the Company C Studio Ensemble in spring 2021.
At CCPA she discovered her passion to delve into her Nuu-chah-nulth identity further. She now endeavors to learn more about herself through indigenous storytelling, and is passionate about creating and participating in work through a lens that is body neutral, decolonial and queer friendly.
In every piece of work, Danica works to bring honesty and vulnerability, not only to the characters but as a human being. They value bringing kindness and empathy in the work space.
Since finishing their studies, Danica has worked on the west coast with companies such as the frank theatre, Kaleidoscope, the Greater Victoria Shakespeare Festival, Peach Street Productions, and the University of Victoria.
Danica also works collaboratively with Extended Space Theatre as an actor/writer/co-collaborator.
They are currently situated on the area of the Lekwungen & Songhees territories.
Danica is an Apprentice with CAEA.
