September 24th at 1pm ET: Maria Gacesa and Santiago Guzmán
Maria Gacesa is an emerging writer and classical musician who lives with her family in Montreal. She works as an arts administrator and writes poetry, plays, children’s stories and she is currently working on her first middle grade novel. Her work is inspired by collaboration and what is revealed to her quietly, often while walking. Her poetry is forthcoming in The Lyric Magazine and her one-act play, “MOTH,” was a prizewinner in the 2021 Norma Epstein Foundation for Creative Writing Awards.
Santiago Guzmán (he/him) is a writer, performer, director and producer for theatre and film originally from Metepec, Mexico, now based in St. John’s, Newfoundland and Labrador. He is the Artistic Director of TODOS Productions, the Artistic Associate for PARC – Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre and General Manager for Neighbourhood Dance Works in St. John’s, NL. He is a proud member of The Quilted Collective. His work as a writer aims to put local, under-represented narratives and characters on the frontlines, whilst inviting audiences to appreciate the vibrancy of Newfoundland and Labrador from a diverse perspective. His plays have been supported, developed and/or produced by theatre companies and festivals across the country, like TODOS Productions (NL), Resource Centre For The Arts Theatre Company (NL), Artistic Fraud of Newfoundland (NL), Rising Tide Theatre (NL), Neighbourhood Dance Works (NL), Eastern Front Theatre (NS), Playwrights Atlantic Resource Centre (NS), Ship’s Theatre Company (NS), Page 1 Theatre (NS), Boca del Lupo (BC), Paprika Festival (ON), and the École Nationale de Théâtre – National Theatre School of Canada’s Art Apart Program (QC). Santiago’s work is very gay, very brown, and very real.
