with Tjasa Ferme, Elizabeth Hess, Erwin Maas, Ana Margineanu, Sylvia Milo

The Traveling Solo panel will particularly appeal to those looking to better understand the logistics, the joys and travails, and the creative challenges of traveling with a one-person show. We’ll discuss questions such as how traveling internationally changes the perception of solo work, thoughts on finding audiences in unfamiliar places, and how a show’s structure and content may help or hinder its ability to find venues.


Tjasa Ferme: international, award-winning film/television/stage actress based in New York, whose solo show, Wild Child in the City, was featured as a part of Theaterlab’s 2016 Fall in Love with Solo season

Ana Margineanu: Romanian immersive theatre director and co-founder of PopUP Theatrics.

Erwin Maas: Theater/opera director, teacher, international performing arts advocate from the Netherlands who has worked extensively in Australia, Europe, and South Africa

Elizabeth Hess: Writer and performer whose solo works have won awards both in the United States and abroad.
