As part of our SpringSeries we are offering free online programming. This artist talk will be available to view live on our Facebook page, and can be viewed on demand at later dates.

Join Dora award winner, playwright, theatre creator and UNO Fest alum (A Chitenge Story and Our Fathers, Sons, Lovers and Little Brothers) Makambe K Simamba for this free online artist talk. In Conversation with Intrepid’s Sean Guist, Simamba will discuss her process in creating solo work. Her past solo works have varied in their process, and in this artist talk, she shares how both A Chitenge Story and Our Fathers came to be, and the ways in which those two different creation processes were structured in order to serve each show and its needs and intentions. Makambe and Sean are both graduates of the University of Lethbridge, where they worked together on several projects and new works. This casual conversation between two friends and theatre artists will be broadcast on Facebook Live and can be viewed on demand after.
