ICP Class of 2016
Colin Trevor joined ICP fresh out of Reed College, where he earned a B.A. in Theatre. While at Reed, he appeared in over a dozen student, faculty, and thesis productions, as well as working regularly in the scene shop. He was most recently seen in Reed's mainstage production of Eugene Ionesco's The Bald Soprano and The Lesson which made up the production component of his senior thesis. Colin has been acting since middle school, and has studied at institutions such as New York's Public Theater. In 2013, he completed a semester at Russia's Moscow Art Theatre through the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center.
Grace Rittenberg was born in Brookyln, NY and lived there until she moved to Portland to attend Reed College. While in college, she wrote plays, performed in main stage and thesis shows, studied in London for a summer, and directed a thesis production of Ionesco's The Lesson. Her favorite things she learned are movement based theatre and devising, so ICP was the perfect next step. She hopes to stay on the west coast for the foreseeable future.
Charlotte Markle is a recent graduate of Lewis & Clark College with a B.A. in Theatre. At L&C she participated in multiple productions as a performer, a director and a writer. Her favorite roles have included Duke Ferdinand/Duke Senior in As You Like It, Thea in Spring Awakening and Trinculo in The Tempest. Originally from San Francisco, Charlotte has worked as a teaching artist with Bay Area Shakespeare Camps and as an assistant teacher with ACT’s Youth Conservatory Summer Program. Prior to joining the Institute for Contemporary Performance, Charlotte collaborated with Portland Experimental Theatre Ensemble as the assistant director and dramaturg on their production of The Three Sisters.
Stephanie Woods graduated from PSU with a Bachelors in theater arts (2012). Since then she has worked locally with theaters such as Sowelu and Imago. Studying with the Institute for Contemporary Performance, she is closing in on something she hadn't thoroughly tapped into. And she's stoked.
J'ena SanCartier moved to Portland from Central Florida to expand her artistic horizons. And that's exactly what she's been up to. She is a recent graduate of Portland Actors Conservatory, where she had the fateful opportunity to create performance with PETE for the first time-- an experience she wouldn't soon forget. After graduating, she starred in The Lower Rooms, a feature length film done with Sowelu Theater. She is so incredibly stoked to be working, creating, and exploring new performance with PETE.
