Everywhere Theatre Group’s Flying Snakes in 3-D!!! prompted a serious and polarizing dialogue about race, theater and class privilege in 2012. In this manifesto, young minority female playwright Leah Nanako Winkler will tackle these same issues with her collaborators while emphasizing  the importance of gratitude, respect, strength, vulnerability, communication, diversity and most of all, a sense of play, to keep theater relevant in this facebook society.

Artists Involved: Ray Campbell, Bobby Foley, Kim Gainer, Jen Kwok, Sara Pauley, Jen Taher,  Chris Tyler and Peter Mills Weiss; choreographed by  Sara Pauley; directed by Sara Pauley, Julian Mesri and Chase Voorhees.

Lead Artist: LEAH NANAKO WINKLER’s latest play, Flying Snakes in 3-D!!!,created by Everywhere Theatre Group and cowritten with Teddy Nicholas, has been seen at Ars Nova, The Brick Theater, and the 2012 Ice Factory Fest at the New Ohio Theater. She is a current member of Youngblood and an affiliated artist at New Georges.

Upcoming: Reading of DIVERSITY AWARENESS PICNIC at The Flea Theater on October 17; Death For Sydney Black at The First Light Festival in Indianapolis in November.
