On October 18th, David Geary joins us to talk about “Identity and Resilience” and what it means in these complex and changing times.
David Geary is a playwright, screenwriter, fiction writer, dramaturg and educator. He teaches in the IDF Indigenous Digital Filmmaking, Documentary and Playwriting programs at Capilano University. He also teaches playwriting and dramaturgy at the PTC Playwright’s Theatre Centre in Vancouver. His recent projects include dramaturg for BAPF – Bay Area Play Festival, short fiction for Aotearoa New Zealand: The Black Betty Tapes, and poetry from the POV of the bat Ozzy Osbourne bit the head off. David loves Trickster tales. He believes storytelling and scriptwriting are muscles best developed through exercises. His yogic mantra is – Life is short, stretch it – and he writes #hahaiku on twitter @gearsgeary.
