The Ordained Time – Ibibio

Hey y’all, my name is Ekemini (she/her) and I am a New York-based, Nigerian-American actor, singer-songwriter, and cultural critic.

My regional credits include Ceres in The Tempest (Commonwealth Shakespeare Company; Elliot Norton Award Nomination – Outstanding Ensemble), Snout/Moth in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Commonwealth Shakespeare Company), and Virgilia/Ensemble in Coriolanus (Praxis Stage). I also acted in the 24 Hour Plays: Nationals 2020 Company. Some of my favorite educational credits include Juliet (Romeo and Juliet), Lilli Vanessi (Kiss Me, Kate), and Lady Sangazure (The Sorcerer).

I am a participant of the BIPOC Critics Lab, conceived by Jose Solís and run in association with the Kennedy Center, so you could say I write a lil sumn sumn from time to time. In addition to all this, I am also an early-career podcast professional (check out what I’m up to here).

I am a graduate of Harvard College, and currently training at the Atlantic Acting School.
