Director/Choreographer/Teacher

Carrie Mikuls is a graduate from the University of California, Riverside with her BA in Dance. She is the creator of I Came To Make Noise, a hip hop theatre feminist production that challenges the stereotype that women are expected to be quiet and agreeable. Through dance, beatbox and spoken word, 3 women share their fears, faults and journeys to self-awareness. Never again asking permission but speaking with vision in the first person: I am enough, I am brave, I am an American. Carrie was a recipient of the 2018 Hollywood Fringe Festival Scholarship for Underrepresented Groups. I Came To Make Noise was the recipient of The Encore Producers’ Award and Nominee for the 2Cents Distinctive Voices Award.   Carrie performed in DEBUSSY: Pelleas et Melisande, with the LA Philharmonic at the Walt Disney Concert Hall. She danced for modern opera company, The Industry, in the unprecedented mobile opera, Hopscotch. Carrie danced with Los Angeles based dance company Stretch Dance Company from 2013-2014. She strongly believes that art can be used to push boundaries beyond our wildest imaginations. Carrie currently teaches online yoga classes, dance classes, and hip hop theatre workshops.

Choreographer

My Name is Myeisha is a hip-hop musical inspired by the 1998 police shooting of California teen Tyisha Miller (as well as countless other acts of police brutality against African American citizens) and adapted from the internationally acclaimed play Dreamscape. At the moment of Myeisha's death at the hands of police, she guides us inside her mind and muses over the life she will be leaving behind, told through hip-hop, spoken word poetry, and dance. Now available on streaming services.

NAACP Theatre Award Nominee for Best Choreographer

Carrie was nominated for an NAACP Theatre Award for Best Choreographer in 2016 for the award winning hip hop theatre play Dreamscape. Bill Raden of L.A. Weekly called Mikuls’ choreography ”harrowingly evocative hip-hop choreography that packs a good deal of the pieces’ visceral and political punch." Dreamscape continues to tour nationally and internationally and has been adapted into the feature film, My Name Is Myeisha, which she also choreographed.
