AfroLatine Superfriends Playwriting Hour
An AfroLatine-Led Playwriting Series Featuring Writers/Theatremakers from Across the United States
In 2021, Tlaloc Rivas, along with HowlRound and the Latinx Theatre Commons, curated a series called the Latinx Superfriends Playwriting Hour. This series, led by Latine playwrights, showcased writers and theatremakers from all over the United States who shared their writing practices, experiences, and insightful anecdotes on the process, inspiration, and practices of dramatic writing.
We are excited to announce that the series is making a comeback, this time with AfroLatine playwrights. The series aims to offer a platform for each writer to share their unique perspectives on writing dramatic texts. They will offer tips and prompts based on their individual social consciousness, approaches to theatrical style and form, and communication strategies to reach their intended audiences. Dr. Daphnie Sicre (curator and moderator) will be online via HowlRound during each session.
The AfroLatine Superfriends Playwriting Hour is an excellent resource for aspiring writers, students of dramatic writing, or anyone interested in creating thoughtful, visceral, and unique blueprints for performance, whether it is for the stage, screen, or other media.
Each session will be fifty-five minutes and will be livestreamed via HowlRound. All sessions will be on Zoom, and the playwrights will log in from all over the United States. For those on Zoom, sessions will be live, and they can interact with the playwrights in the session if they wish.
Register for the Zoom sessions, or press play on the live video player that you will find on the session pages below.
Live human-edited captions and American Sign Language (ASL) will be available for all live sessions, and human-edited closed captions will available on the archival video.
