UNREHEARSED FUTURES (Season 3) #11 | The Burdens of Witness: writing (by) women in times of crisis
Mbongeni N Mtshali | CTDPS and Amy Russell | Embodied Poetics in conversation with Sarah McCarron | Screenwriter and Nikki Yeboah | San Jose State University

Whether negotiating intimate family dramas or the grand scale of a global apocalypse, female protagonists are usually figured as witnesses to (though rarely agents in) the making of society. This week, screen and stage writers Sarah McCarron (Station Eleven) and Nikki Yeboah (The (M)Others) discuss the complicated positioning of women in scenarios of social upheaval and crisis.

Unrehearsed Futures is a series of public conversations between heads of drama schools and leading performance trainers from across the globe to discuss and address the new realities of teaching drama. These discussions look at pedagogical approaches to teaching in the absence of presence, the benefits and challenges of alternative technologies, formats and mediums as well as planning long-term learning journeys against an uncertain future.
