DAY 69: Playwright Natalia Naman
Let us tell ya about Natalia...
As a playwright, Natalia is all about bridging the gaps and connecting the dots of human experience - especially when she can bring out the relationships between her audiences and the all-too-often stereotypically portrayed or underrepresented populaces of the world. She yearns to convey the HEART of the human experience that we can ALL share in her characters... And that's precisely what she did here at CLT last year. Natalia came to Cherry Lane as a 2013 Mentor Project fellow and, under the mentorship of Eduardo Machado, she blessed our studio stage with LAWNPEOPLE. And we're certainly not alone in the awesome experience of working with Natalia... her plays have been developed and performed - building links all over this city - at theLark Play Development Center, HERE Arts Center and New Georges, just to name a few.
We feel so fortunate to be a part of the beautiful and thrilling process that fosters connections between the artist and her audience... that IS theater - art with heart!
Keep creating, Natalia!
