Join us for a "Virtual Roundtable", titled Live Voices, with Katie Brook on September 23 at Noon.
To keep it informal, we are limiting seats, so you will need to register in advance through Zoom.
After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the meeting. Katie will also provide a link to a short audio piece in advance for you to listen to and frame the discussion.
Here is how Katie proposes Live Voices:
At this roundtable we will focus on how and why theater artists work with verbatim text. In what ways do their approaches differ from the strategies and goals of journalists? What does it mean to embody ‘real’ voices in performance? And how can ensemble storytelling using found text be a strategy for unpacking dominant narratives?
