Jovan Davis, Producing Ensemble Member
Jovan A. Davis is an actor/writer/activist. He is thrilled to be apart of something that can marry all three of these things. He is looking to continue the conversation of race and the politics that surround it. As well as making strides in the world of social justice via all art forms. He would like to thank his friends and family for their unrelenting support. And a special thanks to his loving mother and his best friend, Kevin Green whom this is dedicated to.
Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed, citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has.
- Margaret Mead
Mieko Gavia, Producing Ensemble Member
Mieko Gavia is a writer, actress, and all-around oddball from Indianapolis, Indiana. After graduating from Oberlin College with a degree in Theater, Mieko followed the classic scenario of a small-town girl with big-city dreams and hightailed it to NYC. When she’s not acting or writing, Mieko can be spotted foraging in used bookstores or wherever cheap food abounds. You can also catch her at www.miekogavia.org

A former co-founder and company member of Rebirth Theater Company, he worked on an original piece of theater titled Timeline, which addresses the African American role in the United States starting from 1400 to 2011. Kevin was also co-founder of Resonate!, a theater company that promoted, produced and performed local theatrical plays. As an actor, Kevin has performed in the Tina Landau directed production of Antony and Cleopatra at the Hartford Stage Company; as Ferdinand in The Tempest; as Gravedigger in Hamlet; and Florizel in The Winter’s Tale for the Capital Classics Shakespeare Festival in West Hartford, CT.
Now in NYC, Kevin has co-founded BRTW, because there is a need for the Black perspective in America today.
