The 2015 Naked Stages fellows are: Marisa R. Carr, Juanda Petris, and Eliza Rasheed. Marisa R. Carr is a composer, playwright, and activist who was named “Best New Political Playwright” by Lavender Magazine earlier this year. She will create a performance piece inspired by her police officer father. Junauda Petris is a dancer, writer, and aerial artist who will be installing ritualistic and artistic spaces around the building, outside of the theatre. Finally, Eliza Rasheed is an actor, dancer, playwright, and director who will use her lens as an Asian multiracial woman to guide her work.
Join us for a public reception with Mayor RT Rybak and City Councilmembers Elizabeth Glidden and Gary Schiff to discuss the launch of twenty creative placemaking projects in our Arts on Chicago campaign and to learn about the other two Artplace-funded creative placemaking grants in the Twin Cities. We will serve non-alcoholic refreshments and snacks, and many of the artists will be on hand.
