Deneh’Cho Thompson (Dene) is an aspiring director, actor and playwright based in Vancouver. In 2009 Deneh co-founded workingclasstheatre, an indie theatre company dedicated to producing new works, providing training opportunities and showcasing the work of emerging artists. workingclasstheatre has had the pleasure of growing up in the British Columbia emerging artist community alongside Resounding Scream Theatre, rice&beans Theatre, SHIFT Perfoming Arts Society, and others.
Since 2009 Deneh has been developing an artistic practice that uses devised theatre as it’s principal component, often blurring the lines that define the roles of director, actor and writer. Deneh’s recent directing credits include The Dudes of My Life, a devised piece, and The Governor of the Dew, by Floyd Favel.
Deneh trained at Capilano University and, more recently, Simon Fraser University.
