Christie is also the co-founder and artistic director of Asterism Theatre Company. She is most drawn to theatre that is bottomless: plays that reveal more with each reading, rehearsal or performance. Most of all, she loves to tell stories that have their roots the fringes of our communities, our hearts, and our minds and is endlessly fascinated by theatre's capacity to prompt social epiphany and change.
