Arts Calling is a podcast to celebrate creatives across disciplines and cultural backgrounds, but also a case for the arts as the gateway to empathy, healthy lives, and strong communities.
This time around, I’m catching up with an amazing theatre artist: Today I’m arts calling L. Nicol Cabe!
ARTIST BIO: I am a new media theatre artist. I create shows inspired by our potential future, using speculative fiction, science fiction, and fantasy tropes. I write and perform scifi story-telling shows, direct new plays, and help playwrights develop their work. Since 2016, I have travelled the world to fringe festivals with my speculative fiction performances. I have won sold out show, critic’s choice, and producer’s choice awards at several festivals over the years. When I perform my futuristic writing, I do so under my production company, Giant Nerd Productions. I am also a dramaturg, director, and writer who focuses on brand new plays. I have worked on innovative shows produced by Annex Theatre, Copious Love Productions, Theater Schmeater, and Taproot Theatre in Seattle, Washington. Currently, I am developing a thesis on new media and pandemic theatre in a Master of Letters program at the University of Glasgow in Scotland (commencing 2021). I am an alumna of Director’s Lab West (Pasadena, 2014), and a summa cum laude graduate of the University of South Carolina (Bachelor’s of Liberal Arts, theatre, 2006).
