Originally hailing from Illinois and Iowa, Dale J. Young has been professionally active in the Performing and Visual Arts in many different venues and locations since he was 17-though his heart still lies with the Off Loop ChicagoTheatre scene where he worked steadily for 14 years. His primary interests are in the creative process, acting methods, group dynamics, and the possibilities inherent within the empathetic connection, cultural exchange, and intermodal transfer. He has most recently worked with Cortland Repertory Theatre of Cortland New York and is hard at work on a book length project centered around his friendship/experiences with an Ojibwa/Ahnishinabeg craftsman and elder.
