NORA FOX is a NYC-based performing artist who recently performed and wrote for #BARS, a theater-in-verse workshop created by Hamilton's Daveed Diggs and HBO Def Jam Poetry's Rafael Casal in New York's historical Public Theater.  

Equally at home in theatre, film, music, and dance, Fox is the daughter of a ship builder and art teacher who met at Rhode Island School of Design in the 60's.  A New England native, she began performing at the Tony Award-winning Goodspeed Opera House and the Eugene O'Neill Theatre Center.  By the age of 12, she had dropped out of Middle School to move to New York for a gig in Broadway's The Sound of Music.  Fox subsequently resumed a dubious relationship with grade school and today, holds a degree in Literary Arts from Brown University.

She has acted, directed, and choreographed for film, toured and recorded as a singer and multi-instrumentalist / tap-dancing percussionist, performing across the United States, Canada, South America, and Europe.  Fox has shared the stage and collaborated with artists ranging from M.I.A. to Richard Chamberlain and Jonathan Batiste.  She is currently working on her first album, drawing from traditions of soul, opera, folk, and pop, which is due to release this year.
