Truth & Meaning at Play: The Work of a Contemporary Dramaturg
What’s in a name? : A Conversation with Finn Lefevre
The springboard for our discussion with Finn Lefevre is a three-fold question: What does a name say about a person? About their family legacy, their community legacy? About their degree of agency? In their Trans Naming project, Finn seeks to bring new horizons to names, bodies, mythologies.
In the last conversation in our newest series, Truth & Meaning at Play, Resident Dramaturg Phillipa Kelly speaks explores what it means to be shaping the national discourse of theater in America.
