Joy Lee is an adjunct professor who teaches movement and performance. She gets excited about new works and empowering people through drama-based activities. Her interests in theatre, movement, and social justice developed while she was studying theatre and education at the University of Toronto.  Her experiences led her to explore devised theatre, Butoh, clowning, and Theatre of the Oppressed. At the 2011 Toronto Fringe Festival, Lee performed in The Cage, a political satire on the G20 protest arrests in 2010. In 2015, she participated as a deviser and performer in a multilingual theatre experiment titled In Sundry Languages that explored issues of racism and cross-cultural understanding, and it celebrated the beauty of diverse languages. Lee is a founding member of Lester Trips (Theatre) and a 2014-2015 board member of Cahoots Theatre in Toronto, Ontario, Canada.
