He’ll leave his post as A.D. and director of arts engagement for San Diego’s Old Globe to succeed Shanta Thake as the Public’s director of artistic programs/associate artistic director.
The artists will offer counsel and artistic insight to the Globe’s leadership, participating in multiple steps of the selection and production process.
The cohort includes Meg DeBoard, Yolanda Marie Franklin, Awoye Timpo, and Edward Torres.
The free festival, running Jan. 21-24, will be presented virtually for the first time.
The initiative will inform the Globe’s trajectory and provide resources to six artists as they reinvent the art form.
The Old Globe’s Freedome Bradley-Ballentine and La Jolla Playhouse’s Jacole Kitchen will co-curate the series alongside San Diego Rep’s Ahmed K. Dents.
To support this transition, the organization has also promoted Katherine Harroff and Jesse Perez.
From book launches to improv shows, from archived productions to cooking classes, here are some theatre (and theatre-adjacent) online offerings.
If we can’t have theatre until we can gather again safely, what are U.S. theatres and artists going to do in the meantime, and after?
The 2020 fellows are Meg DeBoard, Manoel Felciano, Lavina Jadhwani, and Edward Torres.
