Meet Philip Santos Schaffer & The Anthropologists Save The World!

Save the WorldName: Philip Santos Schaffer
What is your current project? The Anthropologists Save The World!
Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?
 
I am so excited to be working with The Anthropologists on this show! Within an hour of meeting for the first time, Melissa and I were discussing how we both recently had shifted to vegetarianism. My theatre education and experience is largely based in political theatre, and I am always looking for new ways that theatre can intersect with political action. I believe this show achieves that, on top of being a great night of theatre!
What’s next for you?
I am getting ready to go into my thesis year in Columbia’s MFA Dramaturgy program, looking at a fall that will hopefully include a lot of traveling, and working with my own theatre company, WalkUpArts.
What is the name of the last show you saw?
The Hunger Artist
Any advice for your peers?
 
Many of the best things I know, I learned from my peers, so I don’t know if I can give so much advice. Get a loft bed and keep your phone below it, so you have to get out of bed to turn the alarm off. I stayed in a job I hated for two years because I didn’t know what else I would do, and I wish I hadn’t done that.
