alexis scott is an extraordinary creative doula. she creates a vulnerable, ecstatic container that grants permission to dive deep into your process, engage hard questions, and give and receive meaningful feedback. what a gift to spend time with her and the humans she gathers around her, always. your head will be spinning, in the best way.
Alexis is a creator, performer, full-bodied collaborator, and educator. She is an artist with a full heart and a rigorous discipline. Her work is built around the importance and value of community. she believes that when we come together and live in our wildest imagination and truest selves, we can build a better future. She has an incredible way of changing the temperature in the room and making people feel like they can be themselves even when it is really difficult to do so. Alexis can work with anyone in any field and find a way to make the work absolutely excellent. She is curious and incredibly intentional. I would trust Alexis to perform any role and to lead any room with the utmost integrity and care. Most importantly, Alexis realizes that we are all full human beings with lives and hearts and things to do outside of our work. This means that she brings an intentionality to the time that we are together and positive and healthy boundaries to the time when we are not. She understands how life and Art must work together to create happy, vibrant, and sustainable collaborations.
Working with Alexis is an absolute delight. Her ability to witness and hold space - while also being a powerful, gentle facilitator - is a true gift. Whatever the setting, bringing Alexis on board is a boon to every experience.
A collaborative genius. Alexis is adept at following the inspiration in any setting with any group. With a myriad of talents across multiple disciplines, her attention and focus always brings a joyful magic to the project at hand.
Collaborating with Alexis is like becoming part of some wild expedition, where I know I am immediately in good hands as we conspire to make something fabulously imaginative and perhaps a little bit dangerous. She is brilliant, generous, sensitive and fearless in finding the edge. There is an immediacy to the way she says "Yes!" that makes any new idea feel like a terrific one, but if it fails she has the facility and aplomb to hold things loosely and with much good humor -- invaluable qualities in any true experimenter.
Alexis has an amazing ability to move between the serious, determined, focused artist and straight into GOOF. But what this switch into GOOF territory does, instead of creating a distraction or sending the project off the rails, is to open up and shake the creative experience. Her GOOF-dom injects the necessary play into the space that is needed for great new ideas to dance around and show themselves. In addition to helping to inject the project with energy, it also just creates a much more lovely and enjoyable working experience. Don't sleep on the GOOF.
