Founding Co-Artistic Director

Smoke & Mirrors Collaborative (SMC) is the combined creative energies of Jonathan David Martin and Zoey Martinson.  Started in 2010 with fellow NYU MFA alum, Katie Meister, SMC is devoted to creating theater in a highly collaborative fashion, combining socially relevant themes with an ambitious, multi-disciplinary approach to storytelling. Their intent is to give voice to unfamiliar and underrepresented stories in the most relatable, entertaining, and idiosyncratic way possible while challenging their audience's assumptions about the world around them. They have produced theater Off-Broadway, festivals, internationally, and media for the web. Their work is created through extensive research and partnerships with our community, artists of all mediums and backgrounds, and other nonprofit advocacy institutions.

Founding Co-Artistic Director

Washington Ensemble Theatre was founded in 2004 by 11 insane graduates of the University of Washington’s MFA and BA programs in theatre. The Ensemble formed as a true democracy with all founding members carrying the title of Co-Artistic Director. This level of shared ownership led to the creation of deeply passionate and wildly innovative productions.

Now in its 9th Season Washington Ensemble Theatre continues to maintain an environment wherein its members, as well as artists from the great Seattle community, are challenged to grow through their work as an ensemble.


They intend for the theatre to be a physical and creative intersection for community and art in Seattle, and hope to expand the contemporary audience, by fostering a love of theatre’s humanity, utility, and vitality.
