Sequoia Sellinger



Sequoia Sellinger is a composer, musical dramatist, and collaborative theater artist based in New York City. She is passionate about creating work that is accessible, equitable and reimagines the possibilities of what the world could be by challenging traditional storytelling expectations through a feminist and anti-racist lens. Current themes in her work include climate change, capitalism, restorative justice, autonomy, power, and the complications of white feminism. She believes collaboration fuels the relationships we need to cultivate.

She is currently a MFA Candidate in Musical Theatre Writing at New York University (ASCAP Max Dreyfus Award). She studied composition at SUNY Purchase Conservatory of Music (under Laura Kaminsky and Du Yun). Her studies in musical theater writing have been cultivated by the BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop and the New Dramatists Composer Librettist Studio. She is a member of the Dramatists Guild and Maestra and was this past year's Maestra Mentee. Recent musical theater works include: Earth First! (Macdowell Fellowship), Work (Shubert Organization’s Artistic Circle), Silent Springs (BMI Lehman Engel Musical Theater Workshop), Gravity of Me Gone (Ars Nova), and Impossible Green (The York Theatre).
