Anniwaa partcipated in the reading of RIFT by Caridad Svich, as part of LONYLA. :

Check out the recording: http://www.lonyla.com/Rift_Svich.htm
Anniwaa is one of the core Artist, who are curating the anticipated London, New York and LA project: LONYLA.

LoNyLa is a shared, collaborative space for artists worldwide to develop and expose new material for stage, film and television. Its two-prong thrust – content development and distribution – consists of:

I. The LoNyLa Project – A transatlantic lab that helps writers develop material over a 12-week period. By interfacing with seasoned artists in three linked hubs – London, New York and Los Angeles – writers are exposed to different creative approaches and processes.

II. The LoNyLa Network– A global community of artists who can leverage live video streaming and a web-based platform to expose new material to unprecedented audiences.

To date, science and industry have been using globally distributed teams to solve an array of problems and create new products. There’s no reason why these same principles can’t apply to art in the 21st century.

With work by prestigious writers such as Ché Walker, Paul Charlton and Nicholas McInerny this emagalumation of London, New York and LA work is worth the wait. Anniwaa will be a featured Actor in this up and coming event.
