Encore Arts: Q&A with Desdemona Chiang

January 21st, 2015|

Desdemona Chiang is a stage director and University of Washington MFA graduate based in Seattle and San Francisco who puts the spotlight on the marginalized and forgotten... this month she directs Measure for Measure at Seattle Shakespeare, their first restaging of the play in twelve years. I talked to Chiang about the show, finding contemporary relevance in Shakespeare and the challenges of bi-urban living.
