Catherine Filloux, as playwright, educator and activist, shines a light on contemporary and historic injustice, the crises that unfold as a result of such wrongs, and individual and community quests for alternatives to oppression and violence. She’s a tireless researcher and prolific writer, grounding her work in first-hand investigations. Over the past decades, Filloux has traveled to Cambodia, Guatemala, Iraq and Northern Ireland, among other places engulfed by repression or war, to explore realities on-the-ground, as a way to prepare to share stories of loss, systemic violence, love and brilliance through her plays, her teaching and her other writing and lectures. She's also a professor of playwriting, nurturing budding artists as they develop their unique voices.
