Noelle is a writer/director/performer of experimental theater with a particular interest in using art as a means of community building and placemaking. She holds degrees in theater and performance from The Florida School of the Arts and Florida State University. After several years of touring and doing regional theater as an actor, Noelle moved to Chicago in 1998 and became an ensemble member with The Neo-Futurists. She wrote for and performed in the Neo-Futurists' signature show Too Much Light Makes the Baby Go Blind (30 Plays in 60 Minutes) in the home space in Chicago, throughout the country on tour, and in Edinburgh, Scotland at the fringe festival where the company won the coveted Fringe First award. She also created three Neo-Futurist full-length original shows: City Girl! (the Neo-Futurists' first musical and winner of Critic's Choice for Best Musical), Alice (a multi-disciplinary ambulatory trip down the rabbit hole), and Fear (a thinking man's haunted house based upon the short stories of Poe).
