Professor Pomme's Pomp and Pastry Paradoxicals
From an early age Lucia Neare has dedicated herself to channeling the creative force through various art forms. She is a classical singer, theater designer, sculptor, performer, producer, and teacher.
A Manhattan native and the daughter of a gay fashion designer and a misguided heiress, Lucia grew up in Carmel, California surrounded by the pervasive influence of the arts. As a vocal artist Ms. Neare is unique in that she has trained extensively and performed both in western classical music and the south Indian Karnatic classical vocal tradition. She is artistic director of Lucia Neare's Theatrical Wonders, a company that creates free large-scale site specific theatrical works.
A specialist in sacred performance, Ms. Neare has served as a soloist for many Northwest choirs, sung for Orca whales (via underwater speakers), performed in temples throughout south India and atop the Pyramids of Teotihuacán, Mexico. Her design work has been seen at The University of Washington PATP, Seattle Novyi, On the Boards, The Square Room, Velocity, R.E.D, 911 Media Arts, and the Fremont Arts Council's 2005 Summer Solstice Pageant. Ms. Neare maintains a private voice studio, teaches at Freehold Theater and The Moon Paper Tent, and serves as a frequent artist-in-residence at Summit School. She studied theater/ contemporary performance at Naropa University, and holds a degree from Mount Holyoke College.
