In this interactive discussion, acclaimed playwright and scholar Anne García-Romero will consider the ground-breaking playwriting pedagogy developed by award-winning Cuban-American playwright María Irene Fornés (1930-2018). Delving into elements of the Fornés playwriting method (including yoga, sense memory, visualization, drawing and utilizing found materials), García-Romero will explore the new pedagogical frameworks necessary for the sustainability of Fornesian playwriting in the twenty-first century.
Open to Princeton University students, faculty and staff.
RSVP required to Brian Herrera, email@example.com. A brief excerpt from García-Romero’s essay-in-process will be circulated in advance of the session to those who RSVP.
Presented by the Lewis Center for the Arts’ Program in Theater and Princeton University’s Program in Gender & Sexuality Studies, Program in American Studies, and Program in Latino Studies.
