Description

This presentation will focus on the importance of storytelling in theatre and the complicated nature of telling stories that are not our own. When creating theatre, there is a fine line between honoring someone else’s history and offending a culture that we do not fully understand. Where is that line? What stories are we allowed to tell and what is the most appropriate and effective way to honor stories about cultures that are vastly different from our own?
