Christine welcomes playwrights Saviana Stanescu, Caridad Svich and recently former Artistic Director of the Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe Daniel Gallant (Gallant was still the current Artistic Director at the time of this recording) to chat about ways they have helped amplify the work of immigrant artists. Self identifying “artivist” Saviana created “Liberties Daughters” a monologue series for immigrant women hosted by Nuyorican Poet’s Cafe and Caridad created No Passport an unincorporated, artist-driven, grass-roots theatre alliance & press devoted to cross-cultural, Pan-American performance, theory, action, advocacy, and publication.
Each discuss how the pandemic taught them to be creative in producing work online and how it lifted borders and led to new audiences.
