What's Coming Up
Congratulations to Isabella Madrigal and Nick Martin for winning the 2020 Young Native Storytellers Contest with the Yale Indigenous Performing Arts Program (YIPAP)!
Tara is excited to direct the reading of Menil and Her Heart by Isabella Martin and serving as the dramaturg for Molly by Maulian Dana directed by Madeline Sayat!
This is a wonderful opportunity for young Native playwrights to workshop their plays, and after an amazing time with YIPAP last year, Tara is excited to return to New Haven and aid in the development of wonderful, new Native plays!
Readings are free and open to the public at the Yale Off-Broadway Theater at 41 Broadway, New Haven, CT. Reservations not required. Seats are available at a first come, first serve basis.
Tara is excited to share that she is a 2020 Cultural Capital Fellow with First Peoples Fund!
With their support, Tara will be meeting with elders, transcribing their stories, and writing a new play! Additionally, she will be offering playwriting workshops to Natives who live in Seminole, Mvskoke, and Cherokee Nation. The goal is to use theatre as a way to preserve cultural teachings and family stories for generations to come, and she is honored to have this opportunity and project supported by First Peoples Fund. She will be in community with the 2020 fellows in March in Minneapolis. Stay tuned for the progression of this amazing project!
