La MaMa Umbria’s International Symposium for Directors
In 2009, Daniel was invited to give a week-long Hip Hop Theatre workshop at La MaMa Umbria’s International Symposium for Directors. Sponsored by La MaMa ETC, the symposium is a training program for professional directors, choreographers, playwrights and actors. Daniel conducted workshops on the Hip Hop Theatre Initiative’s methodology with participants from Singapore, Korea, Russia, Australia, Taiwan, and the U.S. Out of this workshop developed on-going partnerships with artists Anthem Salgado and Mei Ann Te.
La MaMa Spoleto Open Festival
In 2011, DNAWORKS presented HaMapah/The Map at the La MaMa Spoleto Open Festival at the brand new Spazio Teatro. La MaMa Open invited DNAWORKS because of the unique nature of HaMapah/The Map, and current issues surrounding identity, heritage, and immigration in Western Europe. Adam and Daniel also had the very moving experience of being invited to perform at the memorial service for Ellen Stewart.
