This week, I'm at James Madison University serving as the 2014/15 Cultural Connection Artist-in-Residence for the School of Theater and Dance. Over the next several days, I'll be taking part in various classroom visits, a playwriting workshop, and brown bag lunches where we'll discuss the Power of Theatre to Impact Social Change, the Business of Show Business: Marketing/Branding, and the Dramaturg-Director/Choreographer Relationships. What's more, I'm holding a masterclass on Arts Leadership and Advocacy and a faculty meeting on Diversity in Theatre and Dance Education and in the evenings, I'll be working with students to create a devised play. Finally, there will be a staged reading of The Hampton Years to wrap things up. The following events are open to students and faculty across the campus, so please feel free to stop by!
I'm a playwright, dramaturg, and teaching artist. It is here where you'll find my queries and musings on life, theater and the world. My posts advocate for diversity, inclusion, and equity in the American Theatre and updates on my own work. Please enjoy!
