Xandra Clark is a New York-based actor, writer, interviewer, musician, performance-maker, and all-around storyteller. Raised in a mixed-race, mixed-religious family, she is passionate about the power of stories to open people's minds to the multiplicity of our world and to bridge connections across difference.
Currently, she is a Bat at The Flea, a company member of Poetic Theater Productions, a soloist in Ukrainian Village Voices, a violinist/singer in electro-folk band The Year of the Hare, and co-leader of Colt Coeur's annual theater education program.

Her own performance pieces have been featured at venues including The Tank, Judson Church, Theaterlab, The Bowery Electric, Weeksville Heritage Center, Queer Abstract, Five Myles, and Brooklyn College; and have been funded by the New York State Council on the Arts, Brooklyn Arts Council, Brooklyn Community Foundation, and a Stanford Alumni Arts Grant.
