David J. Diamond is a curator of La MaMa Umbria International programs for theatre artists in Spoleto, Italy. As a theatre artist, he has directed plays, produced live performances, and co-created the theatre company The Barrow Group in New York. He was the Back Apartment Residency fellow in 2017.
David built on the connections he developed during his previous residency and met with new theatre artists to share a variety of approaches to creating live performances. He delved into St. Petersburg’s theatre education system to examine the best practices of the artists who are helping the next generation of theatre-makers develop their skills and shared his experience with students at St. Petersburg’s leading universities.
