Hi Ethan,

I'm Isis, an Egyptian, who would love to contribute to this class as both a citizen and one who interfaced a lot with the Egyptian government on my Fulbright grant. How can I get involved?

I have created collective Theater pieces with varying degrees of success. My favorite theater groups of late are the Mabou Mines and Big Art.

Both are NYC  companies. We need free space to create. I could lead a night based on improve work that I've done with Stephanie Waxman.

I would love to read and discuss brave contemporary Playwrights. Count me in.

Joe.
