“Out of the Rehearsal Hall” takes a deep dive into the theatrical process, even while we are still creating work from the rehearsal halls in our own homes. This season might find you listening to audio plays, streaming a solo performance online, and attending the theatre in a new socially-distant manner. In this podcast series, we’ll explore it all.
Hosted by Literary Director Jenni Werner and co-hosts from the Geva staff, including Fran Da Silveira, Karin Eckert, Angela Guiseppetti, Chris Mannelli, Esther Winter, and Pirronne Yousefzadeh, with music by Andrew Mark Wilhelm.
This episode features Megan Sandberg-Zakian, Evren Odcikin, Kareem Fahmy and Pirronne Yousefzadeh, the four incredible forces behind Maia Directors. The organization is a consulting service for organizations and artists engaging with MENASA stories – those from the Middle East, North Africa, and South Asia. These change makers discuss trends in the theatre field, the importance of being of service (and valuing that work) and collaborations on projects like Madhuri Shekar’s The House of Joy, the premiere of Ismail Khalidi and Naomi Wallace’s adaptation of The Corpse Washer, and the Big Bridge Theatre Consortium’s commission of Rohina Malik.
