Teacher, Artistic Director
Brionne’s experiences as an actor have taught him many valuable lessons in entertainment. To get work, he believes, initially “you must be willing to create it yourself”. And that philosophy remains true throughout an actors career.
A man of his word, belief into action, and after many years of stage experience Brionne glared the lack of opportunity in the face and created the first of these ventures in 2006; “A NOBLE EXILE”, a one-man show inspired by the writings of Tennessee Williams. This personal memoir involved a journey of more than 12 characters from almost every one of Tennessee Williams’ most popular plays and short stories.
Following it’s off-off-Broadway run In New York, Davis was a silent producer and starred in “TRUE WEST” (Theater Row, NYC) as Lee, and “WALLENBERG” (Soho Playhouse) as the Notorious Nazi engineer Adolph Eichmann. Creating his own work lead to more work and a great deal of respect from his peers.
This self-motivation and persistence would lead him toward an incredible amount of opportunities that would miraculously carry him to the Amazon Jungle in Colombia South America, where he would star alongside a globally diverse cast in the film “EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT”, nominated for the 2016 Academy Award in the foreign film category, and winner of the Sundance Alfred P. Sloan award. The film was ranked top 5 films of the year by critics including; IndieWire, New York Times, The Hollywood reporter and Dead Line Hollywood, and was featured in the ROLLING STONE, and TIME Magazine.
