Isaacs and Whitener reflect on their own experiences shifting their career paths to follow the transformation of the field, and they discuss in depth their hopes and dreams for the upcoming changeover in many leadership positions throughout non-profit arts organizations in America.

Just announced for the @publictheaterny 2019 Under The Radar Festival!

MINEFIELD by Lola Arias 
January 11th - January 13th at NYU Skirball

In her trademark political and playful style, Lola Arias brings together British and Argentinian veterans of the Falkland Islands/Islas Malvinas war to share their first-hand experience of the conflict and life since. Digging deep into the personal impact of war, MINEFIELD is a collaboratively created new work that merges theatre and film to explore the minefield of memory, where truth and fiction collide.

Acclaimed vocalist and songwriter @somimusic was born in Illinois to immigrants from Uganda and Rwanda. She is known for her wide-ranging vocal technique, her original blend of modern jazz with African musics, and the innate poetry of her songwriting that often gives voice to issues of social justice, transnationalism, womanhood, and global constructions of Blackness.

Octopus is thrilled to be collaborating with Somi on her new play with music, Dreaming Zenzile, which is based on the extraordinary life of late South African singer and political activist ‪Miriam Makeba‬. Dreaming Zenzile will be having a work-in-progress presentation ‪on Nov 5th‬ as part of the Zoukak Sidewalks 2018 Festival in Beirut, Lebanon!

@djdower is curating a wonderful series of essays and conversations for @howlroundtheatrecommons to capture this pivotal moment of changeover in artistic leadership at non-profit theatres throughout the US and Canada. In the first conversation of the series, Repertory Theatre of St. Louis's new Artistic Director Hana Sharif shares her thoughts about "stretching new muscles" with outgoing Artistic Director of Baltimore Center Stage, Kwame Kwei-Armah: “We hope to lay the groundwork and know that it will not be enough because, ultimately, change is hard and even when you want change, when you say I’m embracing change, when you say this is absolutely the direction we want to move in, an organization that’s been run by the same leadership for twenty-five, thirty, thirty-five, forty years—it’s not for lack of will, that the gears shift slowly, or that there’s pain sometimes in the shifting of the gears. It is literally about the changing of the guard. It’s literally about stretching new muscles. It’s literally about understanding the nature of change and the nature of transition." – Hana Sharif
