Nancy Paris (1971) writes scripts, experimental texts, autobiographical fiction, fictional essays, spreadsheet novels, and makes use of system dynamic scripting or critical fabulations. Paris sometimes performs her own scripts, whether through voice-acting or through public live performances. Always in search of hybrid or in-between forms of ‘acting', Nancy prefers diverse settings (think: borrowed scenery). Be it live or virtual. 

Nancy is a secretary and an artist, both starting points for making Work out of work out of Work. Paris is trained as an art historian at UU, has a background in photography. In 2017 Nancy graduated from the Rietveld Academy (DOGtime IDUM) with a novel-thesis on the abyss between art and work, forming the grounds for the performance ‘Cameo Appearances'.
