Introducing Jacqueline Flores, Our New Latinx Theatre Commons Producer!
On behalf of the Latinx Theatre Commons (LTC) hiring committee and the entire LTC steering and advisory committees, we are proud to announce the hiring of our new LTC producer, Jacqueline Flores! In this role, Jacqueline will be responsible for producing the efforts of the LTC steering committee to amplify the visibility of Latinx performance-making and to champion equity through advocacy, art making, convening, and scholarship. The LTC—a national movement that uses a commons-based approach to transform the narrative of the American theatre—is a flagship program of HowlRound. Jacqueline joins us 28 June 2021.
Jacqueline Flores (she/her/hers) joins the LTC after two years at Woolly Mammoth Theatre Company in DC. While at Woolly, she produced the theatre’s special events and led the Company Pool Fund, an internal initiative that provides grants to its company of artists. Jacqueline has also worked at the Public Theater in New York City, in their Mobile Unit and Public Forum programs; Jacob’s Pillow Dance Festival in Becket, Massachusetts; Ballet Austin in Texas; and Americans for the Arts in DC. She was selected as a member of Theatre Producers of Color’s inaugural cohort and is a two-time recipient of the National New Play Network’s Producers in Residence grant. She is passionate about theatre and the ways in which performance can be used as a means for social change. Jacqueline is a proud Texas native and first-generation American, born to parents who emigrated from Honduras and Mexico.
We are so excited for what lies ahead for the future of the LTC, including dates for programming that we’ll be announcing soon. Please join us in welcoming Jacqueline to the team!
