LYNN SWANSON

brings to Italy onstage experience in NYC, SF and LA, most recently appearing as "Karen" in ETR's sold-out run of "Dinner with Friends" directed by Harriet Power at L’Arciliuto. In her first ETR show in 1998 she performed an original comic monologue, “Body (Re)Builders”; she has since acted in eight other ETR productions, and also directed "Philip Glass Buys a Loaf of Bread" and choreographed “Universal Language”, both by David Ives. She played Francine Riversmith with Chris Cooper as Prof. Riversmith in Richard Loncraine’s film “My House in Umbria”. She has also played a nun, an orthopedist and a socialite for director Dario Argento and frequently works as a dialogue coach for Italian cinema. Besides performing roles ranging from Hyacinthe (Scapin/Moliere) to Mr. Summers (‘Dentity Crisis/Durang) for directors ranging from Carlo Mazzone to Robert Wilson, her original performance-installations have been produced extensively in the US and Europe.
