Kiara is a multi-faceted theatre artist: director, actor, dancer, playwright, stage manager, and theatre administrator. A native of Crawfordsville, Indiana, their interest in performance began with dance, which they began at the age of three. Theatre followed shortly thereafter and it has been a life passion ever since. They received their training at Indiana State University where they double-majored in Theater and Communications with a minor in Dance. While studying at ISU, Kiara had the opportunity to participate in a broad range of performance including musical theatre, devised work, and American classics. In the fall of 2020, Kiara directed two virtual performances as part of the Works of Art mainstage that also featured two plays written by Kiara. As a theatre artist, their interests center on honest story-telling with genres ranging from psychological horror to farce. Joining the Monument company in 2018, Kiara was named the Marketing Director in the summer of 2020.
