Category: Academics, Staff, Theatre Arts


Linda Kesler, a staff/adjunct faculty member in Catawba College’s Theatre Arts Department, recently participated in the Alternate Regional Organization of Theatres South Conference.  

While there, Kesler presented her experimental development process for an original company-developed work, “Where’s My Muffin?” produced last fall in the Florence Busby Corriher Theatre.   She also participated in sessions on International Collaborations for the original theatre productions, best practices for arts-in-education, and collaborated in a new works project called “First Person Experiences of a Fringed Red Dress,” which used the dance form “salsa” to explore female body image representation in multiple cultures.  

Kesler was invited to participate in a workshop providing grassroots information on artist leadership for social change for a new model that the Ford Foundation and New York University will be developing next year.
