Susie Henderson

SusieThroughout her first year at NIDA, Susie was given opportunities to explore her initial passion for stage management. Developing a curiosity for video, she knew she wanted to give this area a shot. At the end of her first year at NIDA, having never touched a projector in her life, she was given the opportunity to design her first show, and despite the massive challenges it presented, she was hooked. Over the next two and a half years she has been constantly working to build on her creative and technical skillset in this area.

Susie sees video in performance as an intersection of storytelling, visual arts, technical difficulties and dramaturgical issues, and is incredibly excited to see where it can lead her in the future. She deeply regrets dropping maths in high school (turns out 80% of video is numbers), but at the same time has found a use for all those hours in the visual arts room.
