Josephine Ganner

Josephine Ganner is a producer, writer, and actor with a passion for advocacy.  She can be found dancing amongst the stars in the Academy Award winning film "The Artist", rocking out with The Yeah Yeah Yeahs in "Stop The Virgens" at St. Ann's Warehouse and "quothing" Shakespeare onstage at The Williamstown Theatre Festival.  She hails from Texas by way of Los Angeles and calls hipster Brooklyn home.

Currently Josephine is developing a one woman show in Houston that she will then take to Los Angeles, New York, London, and Edinburgh.  It's about that crazy time when 80 percent of her skin fell off from Stevens Johnson's Syndrome and it's bound to be a hoot.  She also has a television pilot in the works and is producing a documentary to end the stigma surrounding mental health. 

The Documentary

26 % of Americans over the age of 18 suffer from a diagnosable mental illness, we want to ask: "What is normal?" Let's end stigma and start conversations.  By doing so, we can save lives.  We are the 26 %.
