Indigo Rael is an art school drop out who moved to Austin in 2008 to pursue acting. Between stage and film work, she finds opportunities to create visual worlds with props and scenic design. She was a designer for JOHN at Hyde Park Theatre, for STORM STILL at The Vortex and Polly Mermaid: Apocalypse Wow! with Glass Half Full Theatre. Indigo has Art Directed music videos for bands including The Bright Light Social Hour, Golden Bear, and Andain. She has worked as a colorist on the comic book "Couri Vine" illustrated by Leah Lovise. In her daytimes, Indigo coordinates an afterschool program with Creative Action, sharing her multiple disciplines with young leaders of tomorrow. She is passionate about post-consumer waste as an artistic medium, using trash to create the magical mythology around our Great Pacific Garbage Patch with her alter ego Polly Mermaid. Next up she’ll be assistant producing and puppeteering in Glass Half Full Theatre’s workshop production of The Cucuy Project at The Dougherty Arts Center.
