  Natalie Griffith Robichaux
Acting Faculty


Natalie Griffith Robichaux received her BFA in Theatre Performance from the University of Evansville and her MFA in Acting from the University of California, San Diego. She has performed in theaters across the country including Lincoln Center Theatre, Baltimore Center Stage, Indiana Repertory, Shakespeare Santa Cruz, and the La Jolla Playhouse. Her study at the Drama Therapy Institute of Los Angeles and with MICHA (Michael Chekhov Association) in the psycho-physical approach to acting under master teachers Joanna Merlin, Fern Sloan, Ted Pugh, Ragnar Freidank, as well as Lenard Petit of the Michael Chekhov Acting Studio New York has deeply influenced her work as an artist and instructor. Natalie’s areas of study include acting, movement for the actor, development of the imagination through the body, intimacy choreography and the creation of original theatre pieces. A recent example of original performance work is her solo piece Bicycle Face performed at the International Michael Chekhov Festival 2018, which explores the social construct of the feminine as a pathological condition. Natalie’s experiences as an actor, director, artist, educator, and mother fill her passion for championing the imagination and creative spirit in others. At UC San Diego, she teaches acting, movement for actors and public speaking.
