Visiting Assistant Professor
Intermediate Playwriting, Spring 24



Jarek Pastor (they/them) is a theatermaker with a focus on play composition, dramaturgy, and directing. Their work moves with a tonal dynamism to enact absurdist portraits of social systems from a mixed race/bilingual/transnational perspective. The result is a theater of being more than the expected doing—of presence and acquaintance more than deed and explanation. This practice is driven by an insistence on finding more communal ways of living beyond the closed horizon of imperialism in all its forms. They are a current Many Voices Fellow at the Playwrights’ Center in Minneapolis.
