BIO

KYLE BEST

Kyle Best is a director of theatre and film. His work is physically adventurous, psychologically intense, and funny. He is drawn to both classic and contemporary texts, most often ones that wrestle with the trauma that stems from family, identity, and religion. By mixing stories from America’s past, found in playwrights like Sam Shepard or Arthur Miller, with theatrical worlds filled with projections, music, and contemporary humor, Kyle is able to show how our present is haunted by our past. He is based in New York City.
