Charlotte Drover is a Chicago-based freelance director and choreographer, specializing in physical work. She moved to Chicago in 2013 to intern for Lookingglass Theatre’s education department, after graduating with a BA in Theatre from Drew University. She now works with Lookingglass as a teaching artist. Charlotte has assisted directors at Collaboraction, Something Marvelous, the Hypocrites, and the Goodman. In 2014, Charlotte adapted and directed an original adaptation of The Pit and The Pendulum for the Chicago Mammals, said by the Chicago Reader to “get under your skin in a terrifying and sensory-addling way.” This past year, she choreographed for Profiles’ last production Jerusalem, attended Director’s Lab Toronto, and directed the original piece The After, written by Samantha Dedian for Collaboraction’s final Sketchbook Festival. Charlotte Drover is currently Associate Director for Tara Branham on Jackalope Theatre’s octagon, and will be directing Venus in Fur for Circle Theatre in 2017.
