Brown Paper Studios is the name of the outfit that Professor Judyie Al-Bilali runs in Capetown, So. Africa. On ship she taught 3 courses, including a directors/playwright’s course and her theater class put on a two night show.
Watching the student’s write their own (moving, intelligent, funny) material, grown in comfort and confidence and face the community with their politics, insecurities, hopes, dreams and fears is something that any mentor, educator, or parent can understand as a gift. Moments of magic, watching young people transform and blossom.
