Performer and writer Tyler B. Prinz is a graduate of the Savannah College of Art & Design (SCAD) for the Master of Fine Arts in Performing Arts. Since September 2015, he has been co-leading, producing, and performing with Solo Crowd, a solo performance and art collective which is dedicated to creating self-written, self-performed autobiographical solo performances. The Crowd's flagship show is a bi-monthly salon called You Only Live Once More and has branched out to include an interdisciplinary collaborative show, Reanimate. Tyler has performed his full-length solo show Mental Furniture as part of the 2014 United Solo Theatre Festival in New York City, at 360 Youth Outlook, a Chicago-based transitional housing organization for LGBTQ young people, and originally in Savannah as his masters thesis. Prinz has also worked with The Public House Theatre creating work for sketchTEST and debuted a new solo performance piece Satisfaction with them for their monthly installment of Share a Show in August 2014. Tyler has participated in Chicago's live lit scene at StoryLab Chicago, OUTspoken! LGBTQ Storytelling, and Reading Under the Influence. While at SCAD, aside from premiering his show Mental Furniture, he was also seen in the main stage production, The Three Musketeers, and Edmund in Election Day, an MFA thesis production. Originally from Michigan, Prinz received a Bachelor of Arts from Columbia College Chicago in Theatre/Acting where he performed in numerous productions and interned at a Jeff Award winning theatre in Chicago. During his time at Columbia, he was introduced to solo performance by professor and solo performance artist, Stephanie Shaw, where he learned and explored short form solo performance in a classroom and performance setting. Quickly gaining interest in the topic, it was further analyzed in his studies at SCAD with the queer solo performance artist Holly Hughes (who is from the same hometown in Michigan as Prinz!) Tyler currently resides in Chicago.
