Campo Santo and Crowded Fire discussed and shared Star Finch's first curated event as part of the National Playwright Residency Program from the Andrew Mellon Foundation. This discussion livestreamed on the commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network Saturday 28 August 2021.
Hosted by resident groups Crowded Fire with Mina Morita and Campo Santo with Sean San José in conversation with Playwright-in-Residence Star Finch.
We discussed the vision for Star Finch's first curated event "A Feast of Resilience" and shared excerpts from the video of the event and talk with collaborating artists Troy Rockett and Ellen Sebastian Chang.
"A Feast of Resilience" was Star Finch's first curated event for her residency—a bringing together of artist collaborators in the community. A non-theatre event, but a communing event, to both symbolically inaugurate the residency and a release after the travails of shelter-in-place.
