When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.
Shawn Nabors is an outstanding theater artist and a passionate voice for his community. His commitment to bringing to the stage stories that have previously never been given space for expression by the reigning power structure is unwavering, and I have no doubt we will hear a great deal more from him in the future.
I remember when Shawn walked into an audition I was holding, his script was marked up. That, combined with the strong work he did, moved me. As we worked together on that project I was so struck by how connected he was to the material and open to diving deeper to make stronger connections. He’s an artist constantly searching for the truth.
