Anya Pearson is hosting drop-in online writing workshops for BIPOC writers, in collaboration with Portland Center Stage.
Anya Pearson will collaborate with Portland Center Stage to develop a new work.
“I am beyond honored to receive this commission from Portland Center Stage — and to be part of this amazing and formidable lineup of BIPOC playwrights. … We need theatre now more than ever! The collective breath, the joy, the vulnerability, the investigation of the soul, and the reimagining of what it means to gather, to hold space, and to dream of a better world for all of us.”
Sara Jean Accuardi, Anya Pearson and Josie Seid are Visions & Voices teaching artists with Portland Center Stage.
If you’re passing by Portland Center Stage, be sure to look up and take in our own Anya Pearson, bringing us together through the power of theater.
