I was recently invited to speak to a new play conference in Kiev, Ukraine. I will be appearing via Skype and discussing the movement toward equity on the stages of American theaters.
This opportunity came from my interactions with several Eastern and Central European playwrights while on a trip to Poland in 2016, working on The Time Capsule Project with Joanna Klass of Curie City and Adam Mickiewicz Institute (more on that project later).
I had the pleasure of meeting a trio of Ukrainian playwrights. One of those playwrights, Julia Gonchar, is an organizer of this play conference and extended the invitation to me to participate.
I love technology's ability to bring the theater world together, and I welcome the opportunity to speak with theater makers and enthusiasts from Ukraine and share information about contemporary American theater.
My discussion will take place Thursday, October 19, 2017 at 4pm Ukraine time. The discussion will be video archived for future viewing by those unable to attend (which is essentially most of the world).
