She is and is the artistic director of Onishka Productions and the artist-in-residence at Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui in Montreal until 2021. In 2016, she founded Indigenous Contemporary Scene (ICS), a nomadic platform for the presentation of live arts by & creative exchanges for Indigenous artists.

WEDNESDAY, JULY 8, 2020
12 noon EDT

Satoko Ichihara
Join us for an update on the situation in Japan.

 Satoko Ichihara is a playwright, director and novelist. She writes and directs plays that deal with human behavior, the physiology of the body, and the unease surrounding these themes, using her unique sense of language and physical sensitivity. In one of her works, themes such as sex, cross mating and breeding are clinically portrayed through the viewpoint of women; the audience is showered with physically stimulating, verbal rampages and the actors execute their lines using their entire bodies—at times in the manner of caricature, at times in the manner of confession. Here, the patriarchal, anthropocentric narrative of sexuality and reproductive behavior is invalidated, and even the ethics and morals of the social majority are radically called into question.

THURSDAY, JULY 9, 2020

SEGAL TALKS: Satoko Ichihara (Japan)

 SEGAL TALKS Week 15
SATOKO ICHIHARA (Japan)
Wednesday, July 8, 2020, 12 noon EDT 

 New Times need new Forms of Theatre.” Bertolt Brecht

Satoko Ichihara
Join us for an update on the situation for theatre artists in Japan.

Satoko Ichihara is a playwright, director and novelist. She writes and directs plays that deal with human behavior, the physiology of the body, and the unease surrounding these themes, using her unique sense of language and physical sensitivity. In one of her works, themes such as sex, cross mating and breeding are clinically portrayed through the viewpoint of women; the audience is showered with physically stimulating, verbal rampages and the actors execute their lines using their entire bodies—at times in the manner of caricature, at times in the manner of confession. Here, the patriarchal, anthropocentric narrative of sexuality and reproductive behavior is invalidated, and even the ethics and morals of the social majority are radically called into question.

 Aya Ogawa (Interpreter) is a Tokyo-born, Brooklyn-based playwright, director, performer and translator whose work reflects an international viewpoint and utilizes the stage as a space for exploring cultural identity and other facets of the immigrant experience. The plays she created and directed include The Nosebleed (Incoming! Under the Radar), Ludic Proxy (The Play Company), and oph3lia(HERE). Most recently she directed Haruna Lee’s Suicide Forest at The Bushwick Starr and its off-Broadway remount for Ma-Yi Theater. She has translated numerous plays by Toshiki Okada and other contemporary Japanese playwrights into English that have been published by Samuel French among others, and produced in the U.S. and U.K. ayaogawa.com

SEGAL TALKS WEEK 16 SCHEDULE 

 MONDAY, JULY 13, 2020
12 noon EDT

Ping Chong 
Join us for an update on the situation for theatre artists in NYC.

Ping Chong is a theater director, choreographer, video installation artist and a pioneer in the use of media in theater. His theatrical works bring his unique artistic vision to bear on major historical issues of our times and focus on bringing unheard voices and underrepresented stories to the stage. Encompassing puppetry, dance, documentary theater, sound, and other experimental theater forms, his works have explored a wide variety of subjects, from a hidden genocide in Africa to modernization in China to the experiences of Muslim youth in post-9/11 America. Throughout, the common thread has been a unifying commitment to artistic innovation and social responsibility. Since 1972, as founder and artistic director of Ping Chong + Company, he has created over 100 productions which have been presented at major theaters, festivals, and museums worldwide. He is the recipient of many awards including two Obie Awards, two Bessie awards and in 2014 he received a National Medal for the Arts from President Obama. The Aleph, de Maistre & Me is his most recent work and was made in Spring 2020 while he was quarantined in New York City.

TUESDAY, JULY 14, 2020
12 noon EDT

Susanne Kennedy
Join us for an update on the situation for theatre artists in Germany.

 Susanne Kennedy

 Born in Friedrichshafen, Germany in 1977, Susanne Kennedy studied direction at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Amsterdam. Director Susanne Kennedy responds to the new balance of power between bodies, technical objects and machines with an aesthetic that is beyond the human. Distorted by masks, playback dialogue, doppelgängers and multimedia, the actors confront the audience with a post-humanistic subjectivity. In January 2020, Susanne Kennedy and Markus Selg designed a model for the creation of a world. ULTRAWORLD investigates consciousness as a virtual construction of the world and simulates the transformation of the human being within it. In June 2020 they were able to show Oracle just after the lockdown ended in Germany. “Oracle” is an installation that can be visited individually and explores the transformative power of an oracle using artificial intelligence.

Trained as an actor in Lisbon, Rodrigues soon became close to those who were reinventing the theatrical fabric, either in Portugal, such as the decentred practice of Jorge Silva Melo with Artistas Unidos, or in Europe, such as Tg Stan, a highly influential Belgian troupe within Portuguese theatre in the late nineties/early noughts, with whom Rodrigues has co-created and performed several times. Since the end of 2014, Tiago Rodrigues has been the (youngest ever) Artistic Director of the prestigious National Theatre D. Maria II.

SEGAL TALKS: Susanne Kennedy (Germany)

 SEGAL TALKS Week 16
 SUSANNE KENNEDY (Germany)
Tuesday, July 14, 2020, 12 noon EDT 

 New Times need new Forms of Theatre.” Bertolt Brecht

Susanne Kennedy
Join us for an update on the situation for theatre artists in Germany

Susanne Kennedy

Born in Friedrichshafen, Germany in 1977, Susanne Kennedy studied direction at the Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in Amsterdam. Director Susanne Kennedy responds to the new balance of power between bodies, technical objects and machines with an aesthetic that is beyond the human. Distorted by masks, playback dialogue, doppelgängers and multimedia, the actors confront the audience with a post-humanistic subjectivity. In January 2020, Susanne Kennedy and Markus Selg designed a model for the creation of a world. ULTRAWORLD investigates consciousness as a virtual construction of the world and simulates the transformation of the human being within it. In June 2020 they were able to show Oracle just after the lockdown ended in Germany. “Oracle” is an installation that can be visited individually and explores the transformative power of an oracle using artificial intelligence.

The method has since taken root in both the national and international theatre world. In 2019, she won the Harpers Bazaar Woman of the Year Audience Award.

Adelheid has been teaching at the Academy of Theatre and Dance in Amsterdam for 33 years.

His work is rooted in a radically egalitarian critique of Althusser and other leading theorists of the French left, in particular philosopher Jean-Paul Sartre and sociologist Pierre Bourdieu, and inspired by his singular encounter with the archives of the nineteenth-century French workers’ movement. Since his first publication in 1965 he has ranged widely across philosophy, politics, history, historiography, pedagogy, literary studies, film studies and aesthetics. It is for his work on politics (his account of radical equality and his anti-foundationalist, anti-consensualist and anti-institutional critique of political theory) and aesthetics (his reformulation of Modernism as ‘the aesthetic regime of art’) and for writing which moves back and forward between these two domains that he is best known today. Rancière is sometimes described as a post-Marxist philosopher and his work likened to that of his contemporaries on the French theoretical left, Alain Badiou and Étienne Balibar.

SEGAL TALKS: Dima Mikhayel Matta and Yara Bou Nassar (Lebanon)

 SEGAL TALKS Week 18
DIMA MIKHAYEL MATTA & YARA BOU NASSAR (Lebanon)
Thursday, July 30, 2020, 12 noon EDT 

 New Times need new Forms of Theatre.” Bertolt Brecht

Dima Mikhayel Matta & Yara Bou Nassar
Join us for an update on the situation for theatre artists in Lebanon.

Dima Mikhayel Matta is a writer, actress, and university lecturer in English and Creative Writing. As a Fulbright scholar, she received her MFA in Creative Writing from Rutgers University in 2013. In 2014, she founded Cliffhangers, the first bilingual storytelling platform in Beirut. Her first play “This is not a memorized script, this is a well-rehearsed story” toured as a work in progress at the Shubbak Festival, NYU, and the Outburst Festival. It premiered in Beirut in February 2020. She is currently working on her second play.

Yara Bou Nassar is a Lebanese performer, writer, and director. As a theater maker, She is interested in inspecting her identity with respect to the collective memory and the paradoxical binaries of her society. She approaches themes that are often focused on the deconstruction of social stereotypes and daily behavior in the urban context as well as in the private and intimate space. She is particularly interested in manifestations of discomfort in the body in different forms. Recently, she got selected for a three months residency at La Cité internationale des Arts starting October 2020 to develop a new creation titled “The Missed Adventure of a Hypothetical French Woman”. The project follows her family history and questions belonging and timing in a decision-making process. She is currently collaborating with an ensemble of artists on a collective creation titled “Nouvelle Nahda”, directed by Antje Schupp. It is a co-production between Theater Neumarkt in Zurich and Station Beirut and will premiere in April 2020.
