In this master class he will share excerpts of his current digital work which includes virtual reality interactive narratives and 3D simulations of historic spaces depicting post-industrial cities.

We are honored that the distinguished poet and playwright Sonia Sanchez will conduct a workshop this summer on writing audio monologues. Over three sessions, Sanchez will help participants find their voice through the process of creating a performance monologue.

Workshop participants are invited to come with an idea, an image or experience that they would like to explore and write about.
