Natali McCleary

Nat is an actor, writer and mover, whose work focuses predominantly on intersectionality and identity through various prisms like nationalism, gender norms and religious tradition.

She's okay with that, and enjoys engaging with it from a place of (potentially diminishing) ignorance. Although, the more she knows the more she realises she doesn't know...but she's okay with that too.
