Originally from Germany, Dr. Schreyer Duarte has made a name for herself as a dramaturg in Toronto while also transitioning into directing in the past ten years. Her current production, a contemporary interpretation of Lessing’s Nathan the Wise, is part of the 2019 Stratford Festival. Dr. Schreyer Duarte will discuss how she and her team approached the “staging of the other” in this 18th-century play from Germany, performed in today’s Canada, that reflects on the common humanity that unites us all.
