Ep. 5 Two Months In
What is theatre in 2020? What is art? Is theatre still "theatre" if it must be held remotely or virtually? What might theatre look like once we can all commune again? In today's Art Break, Carolina discusses these questions with past ISC Artist, Luis Galindo, known for his wonderful performances in ISC's Macbeth, As You Like It, Twelfth Night, and A Midsummer Night's Dream. Carolina also checks in with Nikhil Pai, Bukola Ogunmola, and Siegfried Tieber about how they are able to make art while working from home. Follow us!
