Maya Zbib and Peter Sellars - rolexmentorprotege.com

Two of AFAC Grantees at Rolex

18 Nov, 2011 

Participants in the Rolex Mentor and Protégé Arts Initiative gathered in New York City on November 12th and 13th to celebrate the end of their 2010/2011 mentoring year with a festival of public performances, readings and discussions.

 

Present at this commemorative occasion were two AFAC grantees: Annemarie Jacir, who was selected for a year-long mentoring with Chinese director Zhang Yimou, creator of some of contemporary cinema’s most iconic works (‘Hero’, and ‘To Live’), and performing artist Maya Zbib who was mentored by renowned American theatre director Peter Sellars. “He broadened my horizon of what theatre can be,” said Zbib, “ through the breadth of his [Peter’s]research, from current events to ancient sacred Indian art, for example. On the other hand, Peter reminded me of the joy and pleasure of doing theatre and that it does not have to be a heavy, complicated task.”
