In this week’s episode, I sit down with Lianna Makuch. Lianna Makuch is a performer, playwright, one of the Artistic Producers of Pyretic Productions. In our conversation today we discuss how she was introduced to theatre and the important mentors that pointed her towards a career in the industry, her background in Ukrainian dance and the connection between her heritage and the type of theatre she is drawn to, as well as what she learned from her time studying theatre at the University of Alberta. We also discuss what she has learned through her experiences producing shows and writing grants, the importance of creating work with a unique perspective, as well as her experiences writing her show “Blood of Our Soil” and what people can expect from the upcoming Toronto production.
