Third in a series of interviews about how theatre companies are coping with the Corona Virus shutdown. Evren Odcikin, the Associate Artistic Director of Oregon Shakespeare Festival in Ashland, Oregon discusses how OSF dealt with the shutdown due to Covid-19, followed by the Black Lives Matter movement engendered by the murder of George Floyd, and then the September fires which burned parts of Ashland, as well as the nearby towns of Phoenix and Talent. Hosted by Richard Wolinsky. Evren’s latest directorial effort is This Is Who I Am by Amir Nizar Zuabi, a co-production of PlayCo and Woolly Mammoth, in association with OSF and other theatre companies, which is performed and broadcast live [1] from December 5, 2020 through January 3, 2021. Evren Odcikin, [2] prior to joining OSF in 2019, was part of the creative team of Golden Thread Productions in San Francisco, and has directed several plays around the San Francisco Bay Area. Oregon Shakespeare Festival [3] is a theatre company founded in 1935, which presents five plays, in repertory at the same time, from February through October each year. The company is located in Ashland, Oregon, just off Route 5 north of the California border. Photo: Kim Budd [1] [2] [3]
