Meet Dominique Rider & This Sinking Island

Name: Dominique Rider

What is your current project? This Sinking Island

Where are you performing your show and why is it a good fit for your production?

University Settlement. Small spaces are good for telling intimate stories and can utilized in a lot of ways that huge ones can’t. You have the audience in the palm of your hand and can pull them in a lot easier.

What’s next for you?

Not sure! Hoping to continue building up credits as an Assistant Director.

What is the name of the last show you saw?

A festival of plays about black life in South Dallas.

Any advice for your peers?

Artist of color are often times forced to fight for a seat a table that doesn’t seem interested in what we have to say. Remember, that eventually, that table will belong to us.

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.
