ACC funding supported contemporary playwrights from Greater China and the Chinese Diaspora to participate in a multi-week symposium and reading series as a part of a celebration of David Henry Hwang. Signature Theatre Company's Residency One dedicates an entire season to a single playwright's body of work. This in-depth exploration offers the playwright a supportive artistic home and seeks to shed light on the writer's singular perspective and artistic impulse. During the 2012/13 Season, Signature hosted David Henry Hwang in Residency One. Mr. Hwang explores the immigrant experience, cultural legacy and identity throughout his provocative body of work. Mr. Hwang is interested in cross-cultural dialogue and in Chinese artists who are creating work but may not have the freedom to express their artistic voices. Stepping into the role of cultural ambassador, Mr. Hwang will curate the symposium and reading series with support from Signature's artistic staff.2002 | Theater | China
