Amanda Berg Wilson is a juggler of roles, who came to Boulder from Chicago, where she helped found the interdisciplinary performance group Striding Lion. And when she moved to Colorado, she brought with her an adventurously playful breath of creative fresh air. Once here, she founded another company, the Catamounts, with her husband Ben. As she discusses below, the Catamounts don't walk in the same footsteps as all the theater companies that have come before them. Instead, they innovate both onstage and all around it -- with original plays and sometimes with dinner shows that in no way resemble dinner theater, but instead champion the clarion of slow food and brain food intermingled.
We asked Berg Wilson, a force of theatrical nature, to take on our 100CC questionnaire, which she did, as follows, with a mental cartwheel and a rush of smart words.
