Tiffany Beard– How did you start working with Liberated Muse and Khadijah Ali-Coleman?
Lyn Artope– Khadijah went to school with my husband, and later they worked together at Morgan State University. This was when Khadijah and I were introduced. I always loved her energy and spirit. When she sent out an all call for the play, I was excited at the chance to support her art as well as explore my talents. Running: AMOK is my first acting endeavor.
T– Wow! That is a great connection! Is that how you got into her musical play Running: AMOK?
LA– Unfortunately, I cannot sing and because I love the art I have denied the audience the privilege of discovering this fact for themselves. However, I must say that I have truly enjoyed working with my cast mates who have such phenomenal voices and range.
As for the acting bug, I never considered myself to be an artistic person. I was a Psychology major and I worked in the mental health field before obtaining my Master’s in Industrial/Organizational Psychology.
T– It’s a good thing you went to Khadijah’s auditions! It must be a definite break from the norm for you.
LA– When Khadijah initially opened up auditions for the play, I was simply intrigued by it and I wanted an opportunity to explore a different side of myself. I loved the play, the subject matter, just acting in general. I was hooked and to make it better, I found I was actually good at it.
T– That is an amazing thing to discover about yourself. Are you going to keep going in this artistic self discovery?
LA– I always thought I lacked artistic capability. It turned out that I just hadn’t discovered my gift yet. I am very thankful to Khadijah and Running: AMOK, because it’s not everyday we get to learn something new about ourselves.
