Kendelle Parks (she/her) is a Black Canadian actor, and overall theatre artist. She believes that if life could be summed up in one word, that word would be “funny.” From a young age she loved creating and performing, including writing and directing. Her art is driven by her general curiosity for people, power dynamics and complex relationships, which she believes is integral to engaging storytelling.
During her time at Toronto Metropolitan University, she has had the privilege of working with, and learning from, instructors such as Cynthia Ashperger, Nicola Correia- Damude, Philippa Domville, Ivan Sherry and many more. She also had the pleasure of playing Juliet, in Romeo and Juliet, Blanche in A Streetcar Named Desire, and #3 in Eva Barrie’s new play, Untamed, in partnership with Tarragon Theatre.
Kendelle is beyond excited to be entering the industry at a time when there is a surge of diversity, and a variety of platforms for content. She is looking forward to continuing to learn and develop her craft, while contributing to the ever-expanding landscape of the arts, in Canada and beyond. "I love that storytelling in all mediums, is becoming more reflective of our society, expanding on the variety of stories being told, leading to inspiring and provocative work."
