Existere Directors

Kiana Baker-Sohn is a third-year student originally from Ottawa (and moving to some other places along the way), and is studying Political Studies and Global Development at Queen’s. Kiana has absolutely loved getting involved with different jobs and groups on the Queen’s Campus like Vogue Charity Fashion Show, AMS TAPS Services, ASUS Peer Tutoring and Drama Studio Series. Above all, she has immensely enjoyed being a cast member of Existere XXII last year and is thrilled to be among the Existere community again this year as a creative director. Kiana has loved helping the incredible cast of Existere XXIII put together such an informative and creative show, and is so excited to help them welcome the Class of 2021 to Queen’s University! Cha Gheill!

Graeme Hopkins is a third year Political Studies major from Vancouver, British Columbia. Outside of Existere, Graeme is involved on campus as a Campus Tour Guide, a member of his Department Student Council, and on the Queen's Model Parliament 2018 Executive. Graeme is extremely excited for the opportunity to return to the Existere program and create a memorable show for the class of 2021!

Maureen Barnes is a Drama Major going into her third year at Queen’s and is a Kingston local, born and raised! One of Maureen’s favourite things to do is getting involved in the theatre scene in the Kingston community, particularly theatre festivals such as The Juvenis Festival, The Storefront Fringe Festival and The Kick and Push Festival. She is also excited to be an incoming 2017-2018 co-producer for Queens’ Drama Studio Series and assistant director of QMT’s fall production. Maureen is passionate about the messages Existere is capable of producing while utilizing theatre as the medium. She is extremely excited for the cast of Existere XXIII and their real-life experiences shining onstage.
