Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas shares a ghost story, followed by a conversation with Brian Herrera.
Jorge Ignacio Cortiñas is a theater-maker based in New York, and Artistic Director of the Obie winning company Fulcrum Theater. His most recent solo-performance piece, Backroom, was presented at the Whitney Museum of American Art. His play Bird in the Hand received the coveted designation of a New York Times Critics Pick and is published by Dramatic Publishing. The New York production of that play was directed by the author. His play Blind Mouth Singing, also a New York Times Critics Pick, completed runs at Chicago’s Teatro Vista and the New York based National Asian American Theatre Company; productions that the Chicago Tribune praised as having “visionary wit” and that the New York Times called “strange and beautiful.”
