ABOUT OPHIRA

Writer, performer, and accessibility advocate

Ophira is a comedic writer/performer and producer living in the centre of the universe, otherwise known as Toronto. After watching her first musical at age 3, she decided that she wanted a career in the arts, and hasn't looked back since. She studied opera performance at UBC before chronic illness decided to interrupt her degree, leading her to develop a great relationship with Netflix and her bed. A few years, several diagnoses and a couple of surgeries later, Ophira has graduated from Second City's Sketch Conservatory and Writing Programs and focuses on creating work that explores concepts of illness and disability through art.
