2010 Recipient - Robyn Quick
Ten Questions with Robyn Quick 2010 Recipient - Robyn Quick Ten Questions with Robyn Quick 2010 Recipient - Robyn Quick At its annual conference, The Literary Managers and Dramaturgs of the Americas (LMDA) recognized the extraordinary achievement of dramaturg Robyn Quick. Quick spearheaded the New Russian Drama Project (www.newrussiandrama.org), a major effort to bring contemporary Russian drama to an American audience. The project brought together The Theatre Arts Department at Towson University and Philip Arnoult's Center for International Theatre Development (CITD). With Quick as a lynch pin, the two organizations partnered in a series of commissioned translations, classroom studies, productions at the professional and university level, and a series of artistic collaborations and exchanges. This year the Award honors dramaturg Robyn Quick, Professor of Theatre at Towson University, and her work as project coordinator and season dramaturg for the New Russian Drama Project. The project focuses theatrical work created by Russian artists who came of age after the fall of the USSR. Says Quick: "Many artists and scholars still know little about this movement and have limited access to the plays themselves in translation. Quick was also praised by her collaborator Philip Arnoult, Director of the Center for International Theatre Development, a Baltimore-based arts organization with collaborative projects in countries from East Africa to Bulgaria. Arnoult praised Quick's work this way: "Without [her] passion, determination, and really hard work, many of the voices of the new Russian drama would not have reached our national theatre community." With this award, Quick joins the select group of previous Elliott Hayes Award recipients: Michele Volansky and Lue Morgan Douthit (1999), Rebecca Rugg and Lynn Thomson (2000), Judith Rudakoff (2001), Megan Monaghan and Freddie Ashley (2002), Brian Quirt and Mallory Cattlett (2003), Scott Horstein (2004), Lee Devin (2005), Amy Steele and Melinda C. Finberg (2006), Ed Sobel (2007), Ilana Brownstein (2008) and Brian Quirt (2009).

I was thrilled to meet panelist Robyn Quick (Towson University), a kindred spirit who has taken an interest in the new Russian dramatists.
