Manage episode 298352302 series 2763596
A discussion on the finance related demands of We See You WAT, the movement calling for racial equality in American Theatre. In June 2020 they published a list of demands for making American Theatre more equitable. Theatre artist Alaina Newell joins us for the first of two episodes discussing each finance related demand. Some are free or inexpensive, which theatre companies of any size can accommodate. Others require a bit of money and are aimed at bigger theatre companies and commercial productions including Broadway.
Alaina Newell is a multi-hyphenate black, female, cisgender artist dabbling in acting, singing, directing, and writing. A recent BFA graduate, Alaina has taken her experiences from oppressive institutions and formed an artistic form of release. She created Fourth Wall, a podcast that brings on the players on both sides of the industry to investigate discrimination and bias in the theatre.
