Notă biografică

Teya Sepinuck is the founder and director of Theatre of Witness. For the past 26 years, she has been creating and producing Theatre of Witness projects with prisoners and their families, survivors and perpetrators of abuse, refugees, immigrants, elders, and those who have lived through war. In 1991, Teya founded 'TOVA - Artistic Projects for Social Change' through which she created and produced more than 40 original Theatre of Witness works. She has been the recipient of the Philadelphia Human Rights Award for Arts and Culture, a Local Hero Award from the Bank of America, as well as the Cultural Arts Award from Women's Way and the Mayor's Commission on Women. Her work has taken her to Poland and Northern Ireland, where she is currently engaged in her second two-year residency at the Playhouse in Derry/Londonderry, creating works with ex-combatants, members of security forces, survivors, witnesses, and those living with the intergenerational legacy of the 'Troubles.'

"Teya Sepinuck and her casts show us that peace building is an artful process that requires courage, patience, intuition, and trust. Sepinuck, in her profound way, treats every Theatre of Witness performance as a unique moment of grace, but the productions lovingly shared in this book demonstrate over and over that people have the will and capacity to heal one another. May we all be encouraged to kick at the darkness by speaking truth to our fears and injustices." - Lee A. Smithey, associate professor of Sociology and Peace and Conflict Studies at Swarthmore College, and author of Unionists, Loyalists, and Conflict Transformation in Northern Ireland
