We have really stepped up our game this episode with the first PhD on WINMI! Martine is a theater professor at SUNY New Paltz and freelance dramaturg, with work at Oregon Shakepeare Festival, Pioneer Theatre Company, and Court Theatre to name a few. Her research interests include violence in African American Theatre, African diaspora theatre, and gender and race in American theatre and issues of sustainability in the theatre. She talks with us about the role of dramaturgy in creating both new and classical works, and how we all share in the craft of bringing stories and characters to life in the trueness of their surroundings onstage. She even shares her thoughts on Bento Boxes and Collard Greens.
