Yusra Warsama is a performance poet, actor, writer and theatre practitioner. Her passions lie in creating work through play and exploration of life experiences in the world we live in. Past, present and future work takes many forms, from her developing a one woman show which uses spoken word, storytelling, live art and physical expression, to ‘Grace’ (05) and ‘Make – Believe’ (09) with Quarantine, which looks at exploring theatre without focus on characters but instead on the one to one relationship between performer and audience. Yusra is writing a play for the Birmingham Repertory Theatre with two other writers. She is also filming her second international feature and tutoring at the Royal Court London.
