[Playwright] Afro-Atlantic Playwrights Festival, in collaboration with NYU Tisch School of the Arts
December 4—7, 2019
Camargo Foundation’s Cultural Diaspora Playwrights Residency was conceived and curated by award-winning Minneapolis-based playwright Carlyle Brown. The goal of the residency, which took place in Summer 2018, was to bring together mid-career and established African and African-American theater artists, in Brown’s words, “from opposite ends of the Africanist Diaspora,” engaging them in debates about identity and authenticity and exploring the different ways in which international boundaries shape the African experience. This fall, Camargo Foundation is pleased to partner with Tisch Drama to present the Afro-Atlantic Playwright Festival, featuring staged readings of three works completed in the Camargo residency, by playwrights Femi Osofisan (Nigeria), France Luce Benson (New York/Los Angeles), and Zainabu Jallo (Nigeria/Switzerland). This special event follows the successful festival that took place in July at the Playwrights Center in Minneapolis.
