Hannah, appreciate you joining us today. Did you always know you wanted to pursue a creative or artistic career? When did you first know?

For most creative kin that I dig deep into conversations about this with, the seed of their artistic path started to take root in them as children. I can echo that narrative. As children we often walk in creative freedom. It’s how we learn to interpret and learn about the world we’ve been born into. We study the color wheel, we memorize songs, we draw, we run around the backyard in imaginative play, and we watch movies or shows that teach us how to put category to our laughter and our tears.

I recently returned to Bellingham, WA – the small PNW town in which my youth took place, to visit family and old friends. I stumbled across some fuzzy home videos from the 90s.

NATIONAL HERALD

NEW YORK – Women of Zalongo, an original play by Maria Cominis about the ongoing struggle of women for autonomy, impressed the audience in the HB Residency workshop presentation which included three performances at the HB Playwrights Theatre in New York City, June 9-10. The workshop was presented under the auspices of the Consulate General of Greece in New York.

The play is inspired by the playwright’s Greek grandmother and her childhood memories prior to her immigration to the U.S. in 1915. Family secrets and intergenerational dynamics are woven into the lives of four generations of women whose family line reaches back to the heroic women of Zalongo.

The play, supported by the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), premiered regionally on March 3-12 in Fullerton, CA and on March 19 in Santa Monica, CA.

Women of Zalongo has been recognized by the NEA with a $10,000 Grants for Arts Projects Award to present the production at California State University Fullerton (CSUF), College of the Arts, Department of Theatre and Dance Clayes Performing Arts Center. It is among 1,125 projects across the U.S. totaling more than $26.6 million that were selected during this second round of Grants for Arts Projects fiscal year 2022 funding.

DAUNTLESS AND THE DEMIGOD 

"A swordplay and stunt based fantasy short film in which Hannah will be playing Elaith Rien. She is the last of the Order of Souls, the oldest surviving historians of Olladra, the world this piece is set in. Magic and myth over technology and science is the process by which day to day business continues. They have kept written copies of the history of the world over time. As the world changed and they witnessed a darkness beginning to spread they developed martially. The Order of Souls eventually discovered the source of this darkness and the truth behind it, the Sparfell family.."
