Fractured Atlas Application Statement

Hamilton Dramaturgy’s TheatreNow! is a podcast series featuring some of the most important contemporary theatre women working in America. The series has been disseminated for free since 2009.I serve as the Producer and Host, and I have a staff including a Sound Designer, a theme Composer and two Program Assistants. With TheatreNow!, I have expanded the free programming offered by Hamilton Dramaturgy, my international consulting firm, in order to promote the careers of other theatre women. Guests have included: Quiara Alegria Hudes, Jennifer Tipton, Kristin Marting, Paule Constable, Kamilah Forbes, and Catherine Filloux. The podcasts available for free on my blog https://theatrenow.wordpress.com and my website at www.hamiltonlit.com . I began the series in 2009 to provide the public with an oral history of the artistic influences and processes of influential contemporary theatre women working in America. TheatreNow!’s intention is to provide an equal presence of women working in the theatre so that any media program or documentarian can readily find female theatre experts to interview and feature. Season One featured seven episodes, some comprised of two parts. Season Two, which I am currently completing, features five episodes. The women featured are of many races and nationalities: Latina, African-American, French/Algerian, French-American, Italian-American, and British. Prominent playwrights, librettists, directors, curators, lighting designers, actors and producers have been featured. Season Three guests will include a British costume and set designer, a South African director, and a Venezuelan-American playwright. The podcast series is designed to highlight the careers of veteran theatre women and influential early career professionals. In February, 2012, I will post the podcasts on iTunes for greater exposure.
