FROM SHAKESPEARE TO SHANGE, TAWNYA PETTIFORD-WATESVisit Website
Every artist must question who they are. But for an artist in the performing arts, especially for an artist of color, that question cannot be ignored—not by the student artist, the professional artist or the teachers and professors that teach them, mentor them and ultimately evaluate them. This lecture draws from Tawnya Pettiford-Wates’ personal experiences, and includes an overview of the specific methodology she developed over the years to facilitate the journey towards self-actualization and self-determination for the creative and performing artist. She plans to include a brief demo and question answer with a few students who have had some experience with the methodology and the process.
