Amanda Lovejoy Street is a Los Angeles-based artist and teacher whose work explores the recovery of lost bits of self. She brings over a decade of performing in theater (Drama Desk Award — KAFKA THING, Odyssey Theatre), film (Best Performance Award — HOW TO CHEAT, LAFF) and over 100 national commercials to her current film making projects. In addition to performing, Amanda has directed plays and readings at Theatre of NOTE, the Echo Theater Company and devised/performed in site specific pieces in galleries, the outdoors and MOCA.
It is her years of meditating and investigating dramaturgy, art and the psyche that has led her to her intuitive, feminine way of working. As a student of Sandra Seacat, Amanda was first exposed to the relationship between creativity and dreams. Amanda took that curiosity to Kim Gillingham (Creative Dream Work) whom she apprenticed with for 4 years and now teaches alongside, working with artists of all disciplines who are seeking to develop a relationship with the unconscious.
Amanda’s first short film, MAGIC BULLET (with Rosemarie DeWitt and Molly Parker) premiered at Slamdance Film Festival and won Best Narrative Short at Indie Memphis film festival. Amanda is currently developing her debut feature-length film, FLOWERS OF FLOWERS which examines the body, the culture of trauma, individuation, memory, and the relationship between the absurd and the profound.
