Kemp In Residency at Montalvo Arts Center
Margaret Laurena Kemp, associate professor of theatre and dance, is currently in residency as a Lucas Artist Fellow at the Montalvo Arts Center through Nov. 15.
The Sally and Don Lucas Artists Residency Program (LAP) is designed to offer artists from a range of disciplines an environment conducive to individual and collaborative creative practice. Seeking to stimulate an energetic exchange of ideas between culturally diverse Fellows and across varied artistic fields and scholarly disciplines, the residency has earned international recognition as a model of curatorial practice supporting the development of new and challenging contemporary work.
While at Montalvo, Kkemp appeared in a reading of the play “Roman and Julie” by Alva Rogers which examined the historical and cultural dynamics in an interracial relationship, through time and across lifetimes.
Montalvo Arts Center’s mission is to engage the public in the creative process, acting as a catalyst for exploring the arts, unleashing creativity, and advancing different cultural and cross-cultural perspectives. They achieve their mission by creating and presenting arts of all types, nurturing artists, and using their historic property in innovative ways.
