Glen “Titus” Campbell & More To Appear On @AkibaAbakaArts & Raw Management Agency’s Weekly Talk Series!


“10 Weeks In Jamaica: Theatre Conversations from Jamaica to the World!” is a lively series of weekly discussions  with Jamaica’s leading theatre artists exploring the histories and memories of–and visions for–the Jamaican stage. Produced by Boston-based international theatre production company Akiba Abaka Arts, in partnership with Kingston, Jamaica-based talent agency and production company RAW Management, the series aims to connect Jamaican theatre artists with a global platform of theatre makers looking to gain new knowledge, share best practices around progressive theatre-making, and engage members of the greater Caribbean Diaspora longing for familiar stories of home.

“10 Weeks in Jamaica” weekly conversations can be streamed live each Sunday at 4 PM; previous episodes of the series featuring Oliver Samuels O.D., Dr. Brian Heap, Dr. Deborah Hickling-Gordon, and Fae Ellington are available for on-demand viewing on the Akiba Abaka Arts YouTube page here.

Each week the series explores a different theme based on the history of Jamaican theatre, and contemporary narratives presented on the Jamaican stage. The next conversation on Sunday, November 22 at 4 PM titled THE BUSINESS OF THE JAMAICAN STAGE (JAMBIZ) features Lenford Salmon, Company Director for Jambiz International Ltd. and national adjudicator for the Jamaica Cultural Development Commission Speech and Drama competitions; Glen “Titus” Campbell, renowned international actor who became a household name among Jamaicans for his show, “Titus in Town”; Boston-based actor, director and educator Magalie Neff; and Andrew Roach, founder and director of The Jamaican Shopping Club. The conversation is moderated by Jamaican-American theater entrepreneur, actress and director Akiba Abaka.
