Drama League Residency

I am thrilled to share that this summer, I will be working on a new project through a First Stage Residency at the Drama League. The project, called Packing and Cracking, is a multimedia mapmaking event that shows the process of manipulative political redistricting known as gerrymandering in real time. I’ll be teaming up with fellow CMU grad student Joseph Amodei, a North Caroline native, to look specifically at the status of redistricting in that state, which was recently featured in the New York Times.
