Formerly based in Ottawa, Linnéa founded Salt & Pepper Children’s Theatre Company and when the benefits of collaboration became irresistable, co-founded Salamander Theatre for Young Audiences. She has many years of acting experience, most recently as Golde in Glebe Neighbourhood Activities Group’s Fiddler on the Roof (Ottawa). For eight years, Linnéa brought drama-in-education workshops to schools in Ottawa with Salt & Pepper Children’s Theatre Group and Salamander Theatre for Young Audiences. She was also a Waldorf class teacher for one year (Grade 5). "For me, theatre is a way of exploring my relationship to ideas and identities in a way that combines heart, mind, and body. Theatre can be a ‘rehearsal for reality’, a cathartic moment, or a study in gut-splitting humour. I like to bring theatre into schools because learning also happens through play and playing with one’s whole being is education for life."
