Stage manager and lighting designer Carrie Cox has spent many years perfecting the art of stuffing magic rabbits into top hats and strategically cajoling artists on and off stages. Over the years, she has supported shows for Lynn Dally’s Jazz Tap Ensemble, BalletMet Columbus, Ronald K. Brown/EVIDENCE, Carlota Santana Spanish Dance Company, Robert Post Comedy Theatre, Momix, David Dorfman Dance, Roxane Butterfly, Karl Rogers’ Red Dirt Dance, RythMEK, Yin Mei, and at Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Becket, Massachusetts. Most recently, Cox supported international choreographer Vincent Mantsoe at New York City Center’s 2017 Fall for Dance Festival. For over a decade, Cox provided production management for the Bates Dance Festival in Lewiston, Maine. For Ohio State Dance, Carrie teaches production, manages the Barnett Theatre and composes poetry which may (or may not) encourage students to clean up after themselves. She is a proud company member of the Columbus-based Available Light Theatre.
