About Me

What's up, y'all! I am Teresa C. Elj, a Southern glass of sweet tea from Charleston, SC mixed with the sing-song lilt of an Irish folk song, working and living in Chicago. 

 

As a performer, I enjoy working on devised work, movement based work, turn of the century realism/musicals, dark comedy, and satire that challenges our contemporary ideals, standards, and ways of thinking. I long to use my art to heal and connect back to the inner child.  

 

I have been told I look like Zoeey Deschanel and that my personality reflects that of Emma Stone and Ruth Wilson. Powerful, smart, and quirky women with fiery personalities and important stories. That's me. 

When I am not performing, I can be found trapezing around Chicago and Charleston sniffing for a good hidden garden; singing on long hikes in the hills of Ireland; or sneaking within libraries inquiring about the latest and greatest reads.

Wanna know more? Check out my resume and news feed. Please reach out! I am always willing to send you my favorite fairy tale or recommend good websites for cheap flights to your next vacation.
