Several members of Madison Performance Philosophy Collective are involved with UW-Madison Theatre Department’s conference this weekend! On Friday evening the keynote speaker is Harvey Young, who is doing really interesting work on race and performance. And on Saturday afternoon, the Arts Institute’s fantastic artist-in-residence Rhodessa Jones is teaching a workshop!
