Professor Margaret Laurena Kemp To Direct Adaptation of Acclaimed Novel
Professor Margaret Laurena Kemp, chair of theatre and dance, will direct Remote Theatre’s forthcoming production which is a mixed-reality piece inspired by the late Obie-award winning playwright Ntozake Shange’s coming of age novel, Liliane. The production, titled Your Mind, Girls, is set to launch in early 2024 in the San Francisco Bay Area.
Remote Theater, an award-winning theater collective born at the start of the pandemic, creates performance that employs augmented and virtual reality.
“Our original mission is to explore new media formats, new voices, and new audiences,” said Giovanni Rodriguez, co-founder/artistic director at Remote. “This particular production helps us to address a number of highly-debated social issues, including the impact of technology on how we perceive the world.”
