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.
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. My Name is Myeisha is the winner of the 2018 Slamdance Film Festival Award for Beyond Feature, won Best Feature at the 2018 Boston Underground Film Festival, the Grand Jury Award Narrative Feature at the Mammoth Lake Film Festival in 2018, as well as many other awards.
