This Creative Soul...
Jhonu Alicia is podcaster, actor, writer, visual artist, that's content and spaces to help other artist realize they are not alone. She is known for ranting and rambling on his podcast Ranting Through Life: Life Hacks for the Creative Soul, but her artistic journey actually began in the theater, at the age of 6, when she played Little Ti Moune in Once on this Island, at Dillard University, in New Orleans.
After high school she went to New York to gain discipline for the craft at Tom Todoroff's studio and Conservatory. In 2015, Jhonu took a few years away from preforming to focus on extended family in Houston, where she currently resides. In the time between New York and her theater reawakening in 2018, Jhonu Alicia self-published a short YA poetry book called Rants of My Post-Adolescence, and in 2020 she received her Associates in Dramatic Arts.
Over the years, Jhonu has had the honor of bringing to life classic characters like, Medea of Euripides’ Medea and Pompey from William Shakespeare's Measure for Measure, as well as, characters like Bully from In the Blood by Susan-Lori Parks, and the assortment of colorful characters in the one woman play Beauty’s Daughter by Dale Orlandersmith, in addition to so many more.
Though the her creative journey is far from over, Jhonu Alicia has learned that being a creative can get lonely sometimes and has made it her mission to help ease that feeling for other creatives through motivation, hacks, shared experiences, and almost literally whatever it takes to keep
creatives ranting through life.
