Harry Bryce is guest director for our upcoming production, Nothin' Nice. Bryce has developed visionary works as a director, choreographer, writer, and arts educator for over thirty years. He has led dance companies in Richmond, VA and Atlanta, GA where his original concert ballet, Where the Cane Breaks: Moments in the Life of Harriet Tubman performed to sell-out crowds and received national and critical acclaim at the National Black Arts Festival.

In 1997, Bryce founded the Memphis Black Repertory Theatre and served as producing artistic director for five seasons. He produced and directed twenty-one productions for the theatre including Having Our Say, Blues for An Alabama Sky, Shakin’ the Mess Outta Misery, The Old Settler, Dreamgirls, Once On This Island, Ain’t Misbehavin’, Spunk, Five Guys Named Moe, and The Black Nativity; garnering seventeen theatre awards throughout.

We are excited to have Bryce directing Nothin' Nice; a play about a young man's fight against environmental injustice, written by Carpetbag's Artistic/Executive Director, Linda Parris-Bailey.
