He seeks to enliven shows with body driven spectacle, and to invite new audiences into the theater with quality work, imaginative staging and the pursuit of uniquely theatrical techniques. Physical theater is of particular interest to Spencer, having studied Theatrical Biomechanics, Clown, Mask, Leqoc and more.
As an Actor, Spencer enjoys peforming a variety of styles from realism, to clown, but takes particular delight in absurdism, and the heightened worlds of Shakespeare and other epic playwrights. As a director, he thrives on empty spaces, powerful stories, and dynamic, highly physical staging. As a playwright, Spencer uses a research driven process to create thought provoking works that offer a broad scope on social issues with a particular focus on family relationships, and industry critiques.
