Virtual Conversation with a Theater Maker: Jade King Carroll
July 10, 2020
4:45-5:45 PM (EDT)
FREE and open to all
Since late March, Program in Theater Director Jane Cox has invited special guests to join her students for informal conversations about theater-making and the creative process. The broader community is invited to join these virtual conversations on Zoom. We ask — what inspires these significant theater artists? What does community mean to them? How do they think about audiences, casting, design, arts education?
This week, Princeton Theater alumnae Victoria Davidjohn ’19 and Abigail Jean-Baptiste ’18 host award-winning theater director Jade King Carroll. The 30-minute conversation will be followed by a Q&A for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous and people of color) attendees only.
