Nidia Medina Named Producing Director of INTAR

Previously an associate artistic director with the NYC company, she’ll now lead alongside artistic director Lou Moreno.

NEW YORK CITY: International Arts Relations (INTAR Theatre) has announced the promotion of former associate artistic director Nidia Medina to the position of producing director, alongside current artistic director Lou Moreno.

“It’s a great honor to be given the opportunity to steward such a vitally important creative space through its exciting next phase of life,” said Nidia Medina in a statement. “I have worked in many theaters in New York City, and I don’t know a single place that nurtures a creative community the way INTAR does. I’m excited to work alongside Lou, a talented staff, and a wonderful array of artists in our humble and mighty Hell’s Kitchen home to continue being a think tank, a safe place, a gathering space, and a place where the world can look to see what amazing things Latine theatre artists are cooking up next. Stay tuned, because we have plans!”

Said Moreno in a statement, “I am thrilled to welcome long-time INTAR artist and community member Nidia Medina into a well-deserved leadership position. While working as artistic producer on multiple productions, and then in a permanent role as associate artistic director, Nidia has demonstrated a deep commitment to providing a safe space for our intergenerational Latine community of artists and administrators. As our new producing director, Nidia’s vast experience and vision will no doubt be a huge asset in the coming years as we prepare to celebrate our 60th anniversary, and beyond that towards exciting new iterations of INTAR.”

Medina is a theatre producer and artist who was worked professionally in many aspects of nonprofit theatre over the last 17 years. As associate artistic director, she produced the award-winning run of Vámonos by Julissa Contreras. Recently she has also worked with WP Theater as artistic producer, leading the charge on the successful run of Sancocho by Christin Eve Cato, and served as interim producing director at The TEAM. Other producing positions include being a line producer at the Public Theater, associate producer and director of the Studio at Theatre for a New Audience, and Special Projects Producer at WP Theater. In addition to her producing work, Nidia is also a writer, performer, and curator of programs and artistic happenings. She holds a BFA in Acting from Emerson College and a Master’s in Arts and Cultural Management from Pratt Institute.

INTAR Theatre, now in its 58th season, is the nation’s oldest theatre company dedicated to commissioning, developing, and producing plays by Latine theatre artists at all stages of their careers in English. As of 2022, the theatre’s budget was around $585,000.
