Latinx Theatre Commons Designer and Director Colaboratorio

The Latinx Theatre Commons Designer and Director Colaboratorio was a five-day series of learning opportunities in Portland, Oregon designed to encourage authentic creative expressions and collaboration between Latinx designers and directors. The Latinx Theatre Commons brought together thirty-seven artists from around the United States to work together with the shared goals of fostering alternative communication models for production teams and challenging the typical director-driven model. This series of essays reflects on the learnings from Colaboratorio, the challenges that arose, and the meaningful ways in which the participants engaged with each other. We hope this encourages others to engage in these conversations, write about them, and continue pushing our field forward.

Black and Indigenous Futures

From slavery to stolen land, African Americans and Indigenous peoples have been harmed by settler colonialism from pre-revolutionary times to today. Their histories are unique and intertwined, with examples of distrust and violence as much as solidarity and alignment. At ArtsEmerson, our leadership is Black (David Howse) and Indigenous (Ronee Penoi, Laguna Pueblo/Cherokee)—a rare occurrence in a major arts institution. We see our shared leadership as a unique opportunity to imagine a better, liberated future together for Black and Indigenous peoples and, by extension, all peoples. As part of a year-long Black and Indigenous Initiative, we are collaborating with our colleagues at HowlRound on the Black and Indigenous Futures Convening and on this series that reflects on Black and Indigenous shared leadership, solidarity, kinship, identity, and artistic practice.

Latinx Theatre Leaders at the Forefront

If history is made by those who write it, then the Latinx Theatre Leaders at the Forefront series serves as a historical intervention by adding to the limited existing documentation of Latinx theatre leaders.This series convenes Latinx theatre leaders to amplify their experiences in a field that has ignored their existence and failed to provide enough resources to build the infrastructure necessary for success. In an effort to continue legacy and leadership cultivation, these interviews pair established theatremakers with new and future leaders, creating intergenerational conversations that model horizontal mentorship and learning. Join us to share in these leaders’ hope for future generations and to learn how they have mobilized that hope by creating community and producing work that centers Latinx stories.

Parallel Tracks 2.0

Parallel Tracks 2.0 gathers diverse voices of Canadian theatre artists and producers to explore the ways in which anti-oppressive approaches are part of our creative work, in live spaces as well as digital ones. Originally commissioned by and presented in partnership with Toronto's Undercurrent Creations, conversations about care, community engagement, and consent take centre stage in this series. From navigating ethics in contracting, to intergenerational storytelling, this series reflects on ways of gathering and collaborating in online creative spaces. This series is in part supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
