Shaping the Future of the Directing Field
Written by Jennifer Onopa for HowlRound
"As I approach graduation from a directing MFA program, I have been seeking a network of woman directors with whom to confer about our practice. Women, and particularly women of color, comprise a small portion of theatre directors and often face challenges around issues of artistic leadership. I interviewed Sanaz Ghajar, Rebecca Martínez, and Nicole A. Watson, all of whom have been directing professionally for eight to ten years. I look to these successful early and mid-career women directors of color as inspirations and important trailblazers in the field. With these interviews I hope to contribute to the growing documentation of work created by women of color theatre directors."
