The Centre for Free Expression at Ryerson University presents a Zoom presentation by Chilean-Canadian theatre artist and author Carmen Aguirre on April 7.
The title of the conversation, cosponsored by the Vancouver Public Library, is Cancel Culture in Theatre: what is to be done?
Aguirre will be joined in the discussion by playwright, actor, and director Marilo Nuñez, founding artistic director of Alameda Theatre Company.
This free event takes place at 4:00pm EDT. CLICK HERE for more info and for the Zoom link.
For context, watch Carmen’s recent video essay (see below) that was originally commissioned for for Vancouver’s PuSH Rally and released individually after the cancellation of the event.
There were many responses to Carmen’s essay. Some of the widely shared ones can be seen here:
