NO SUMMARY with Evren Odcikin and Nora el Samahy
Online conversations with artists that don’t fit in a box
Golden Thread Productions presented NO SUMMARY with Evren Odcikin and Nora el Samahy livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Friday 4 December 2020 at 3 p.m. PST (San Francisco, UTC -8) / 5 p.m. CST (Chicago, UTC -6) / 6 p.m. EST (New York, UTC -5).
Join us for a chat with Golden Thread Board President and beloved actor Nora el Samahy and longtime resident artist Evren Odcikin, now serving as the Associate Artistic Director at Oregon Shakespeare Festival. They will discuss championing Middle Eastern stories and voices in mainstream American theater, how artists can be centered in this moment of transition for the field, and art-making during a pandemic! Nora and Evren will also discuss their current collaboration with Mona Mansour, a Golden Thread resident artist and 2020 commissioned playwright who was featured in our second NO SUMMARY episode. Evren will discuss his upcoming production of This is Who I Am by Amir Nizar Zuabi, known to Golden Thread audiences as the playwright of Oh My Sweet Land in which Nora performed, staged at home and community kitchens. This is Who I Am is a play written for Zoom and created with an international group of collaborators during the lockdown, running 5 December 2020 to 3 January 2021.
