Lily Shell is a dramaturg and costume designer born and raised in New York City. She currently splits her time between NYC and Madison, Wisconsin, where she is pursuing her MA in Interdisciplinary Theatre Studies at the University of Wisconsin-Madison with a certificate in Visual Cultures. She completed her Costume Apprenticeship at The Juilliard School in 2018, and she graduated from Vassar College in 2016 with a BA in American Studies.
Lily is interested in dramaturgy through design, varied applications of curatorial work, and collaborative and non-hierarchical performance processes. Her liberal arts coursework strongly informs her performance work, which is equally as influenced by popular culture as it is by historical and textual contexts. She loves the ocean.
