Ce-Lee (Rachel Smith) is an Actor, Director and Writer. She specializes in Devised Theatre, often self-producing much of her own work. She strives to be a versatile artist always looking at ways to advance her artistic practice. She has begun to incorporate more music into her work and has recently entered into the world of film. Once Ce-Lee decided to find ways to get more involved in the film community, she quickly joined a female-lead film collective, newly named “Those Winnipeg Women.” Since joining at the beginning of 2020, she has learned much about the subtle, and major, differences of being an artist for the screen verses the stage.
Ce-Lee has a formal education from the University of Manchester, UK where she earned a Master of Arts in Theatre & Performance. Previous to her time abroad she studied at the University of Winnipeg receiving a Bachelor of Arts Honours in Theatre & Film. In addition to her University education, Ce-Lee has gained practical experience through a combination of working under established theatre and film artists as well as through self-navigation.
As a passionate and self-motivated artist, Ce-Lee endeavours to constantly better herself as an artist, always setting new goals and taking risks. She actively pursues opportunities relating to theatre, film and music. She currently lives in Winnipeg, Canada but aspires to have an international career.
