Join us for an interdisciplinary, year-long series of intimate conversations with theatre artists on the challenges of creating work under the pandemic, and engaging with social justice movements around the world.
Chile just won, through mass protest, the right to rewrite its constitution. In October 2020, after nearly a year of sustained mass protests, Chileans won the right to rewrite their constitution. Join us in a conversation with award-winning playwright Guillermo Calderón, and founding member of Teatro de Chile company, Héctor Morales Bettancourt for their first hand accounts of political theatre in these turbulent times. Eduardo Pavez, playwright, musician and Columbia doctoral student, will be moderating this conversation on how to sustain artistic work through the pandemic, and what the role of theatre and performing arts might be in this new Chile, post-pandemic.
