Stephanie Bou Chedid is an actor,painter and writer. She has lived between Beirut,Paris and New York City since her early twenties.Her educational background includes film studies, literature, painting and acting.Her film work has so far been rather uncommercial, with a silent feature film, “The Symphony of Pansies”, made during confinement by distance with Indian director Aneek Chadhuri, and a short film, “Renascence”, dealing with trauma. Her interests lie in translating trauma into image and through sound, whether it is through film or through painting.She has simultaneously founded a collective for Lebanese actors that echoes the Actor’s Studio in New York City, through which she invites actors to work within the method, mainly the Lee Strasberg method in which she is trained, to create work that is unseen by the public but made for training and development purposes. It is called the Beirut Actors’ Collective.
