Nat Kelley DiMario is a queer, trans, stage manager. Based in NYC (though currently uprooted by the pandemic!) and born and bred in New England, Nat tackles art that challenges conventional storytelling norms, including dance theatre, puppetry, shadow play, devised, and immersive work. The Covid-19 pandemic has opened up a whole new realm of virtual events, redefining what constitutes "live theatre". Nat was a stage manager for Ken Davenport's TheaterMaker's Summit in November 2020, and recently stage managed Journey Around My Bedroom, an interactive Zoom toy theatre piece as part of New Ohio's Theatre for Young Minds program.

Nat is a classroom facilitator at the Foote School in New Haven, CT where in addition to supervising 100+ students in grades 6-9, they also serve as a teaching artist for a theatre design seminar. They received their B.A. in Theatre with a concentration in Design and Production from Fordham University in 2020.
