Who is KAlonjee?
Kalonjee Gallimore is a New York-based actor/singer/dancer born in Harlem, NY, and raised in Atlanta, GA. He is currently pursuing a BFA in Musical Theatre at NYU Tisch School of the Arts with a TRIPLE minor in Producing; Business of Entertainment, Media, and Technology; and Public Policy & Management.
Kalonjee discovered his love for performing at the age of 8; however, he started taking his training and career seriously upon being accepted into one of Atlanta's top performing arts high schools: Dekalb School of the Arts. Over the course of his 4 years there, he studied Theatre, Voice, Dance, Film, and Technical Theatre.
Now, Kalonjee continues to learn and grow in the greatest city in the world. While studying at NYU he has received world-class training from renowned teachers and has begun to pave a path for his career. He now has two Off-Broadway credits to his name and has worked closely with some amazing regional theatres including The Alliance Theatre in Atlanta, GA, and Flat Rock Playhouse in Flat Rock, NC, and Surflight Theatre in Beach Haven, NJ.
Kalonjee believes that as an actor he is called to empathize with his character's struggles and aspirations and he hopes that through that exploration someone in the audience will follow suit. Kalonjee believes theatre can allow audiences to access emotions previously inaccessible, and verbalize insights previously impossible to render into words. And that power is what calls him to keep creating visceral thought-provoking work.
Kalonjee wants to work with artists also called to make transformative work? Are you one of them?
