Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal presents “Exploring Practice: Social Justice as an Engine for Theatrical Creation with Donna-Michelle St. Bernard”.
“A story is a world; a storyteller is a world maker. Your politic is unavoidably in the work, and yet a play is not a polemic. Explore ways to center your story without sidelining your values. Underpin artistic incursions into social justice through inclusive practice and thoughtful process. Consider intentional displacement, diverse cosmologies, universality through specificity, coding for class, introduced vocabularies.”
