ContactKatja.Hilevaara(@gold.ac.uk)This spring Performance Research Forum (PRF) hosts another excellent line-up of talks and events. This free event will take place on Zoom, and can be booked through Eventbrite.
An international panel conversation about the diversification of contemporary performer training which builds on the recent publication of a special issue of ‘Against the Canon’ in Theatre, Dance and Performance Training 11:3 (Routledge, 2020).
Panellists will include three authors from the journal: Kaja Dunn and Sharrell Luckett (USA), and Kristine Landon-Smith (former artistic director of Tamasha). They will be joined by Abdul Shayek (artistic director of TARA); and Gail Babb (former member of Talawa Theatre and staff member at Goldsmiths).
Attendees will receive short films from each of the panel members introducing their practice to watch in advance of the panel discussion.

I am looking forward to presenting with panelists Nicole Brewer and Leslie Ishii on VASTA's Anti- Oppression panel Saturday.
Then directing a beautiful reading of Tonya Pinkin's new play Jeffery Manor with NC Black Rep on Sunday. It has been a beautiful experience being in the "room" with Black woman stage manager Taylor Murrell, and actresses Chanda Branch, Nadirah, Melissa Joyner, Elizabeth Flax, April Mae, Melanie Matthews. #theatre
