Leigh Rondon-Davis

Leader of Artistic Curation & Marketing

Leigh Rondon-Davis (they/them) is a performer, dramaturg, director, and producer; in addition to their creative work, Leigh is on staff as part of Crowded Fire Theater’s shared leadership team as the Leader of Artistic Curation & Marketing, where they are also a Resident Artist. Additionally, they are an Artistic Company Member at Shotgun Players, Casting Director with the Casting Collective, and Producing Director with The Forum Collective. Leigh has had the immense pleasure of working at dozens of local companies, including A.C.T., Aurora Theatre, Berkeley Rep, Curran, Magic Theatre, New Conservatory Theatre Center, Oakland Theater Project, Playwrights Foundation, TheatreFIRST, West Edge Opera, and 3GT. While Leigh wears many hats as a theater-maker, much of their work and personal passion has been to shift the industry and its culture to be more equitable, inclusive, accessible, and sustainable. Leigh is an organizing member of a number of accountability and EDI groups to help further initiatives and policies to better support BIPOC and other artists of marginalized identities, and they recently completed the anti-racist train-the-trainer program, Making Good Trouble, becoming an anti-racist educator and facilitator. Leigh’s practice draws inspiration from liberation and abolition movements, transformative justice, adrienne maree brown’s Emergent Strategy, trauma-informed care, and their experience as a sexual health educator and rape crisis counselor in order to create safe and supportive creative spaces. Outside of theater, Leigh enjoys swimming, reading, going to concerts, crafting cocktails, and cuddling their dog Langston.
