Merry received an NEA directing fellowship to study fool and clown in Shakespeare. For the past 20 years she has been the Co-Artistic Director of Conway & Pratt Projects, making large-scale walk-through environments housed in abandoned spaces. The projects address themes of social import, and they create images of gesture and physical memory with performance, video and Super 8 film. They interweave these images with loaned objects and commentary from hundreds of people in local communities. Merry trained at Boston University and Common Stock Theatre in London, and did several courses with Jacques Lecoq.
