Human 2.0 Artist – Lauren Ferebee

This interview series will focus on the artists of DEINDE and ForePlay Human 2.0, asking them to riff on the themes and question of the plays.

Lauren Ferebee is one of the newest additions to Flux Sunday, and has brought a focused playfulness to all the roles she’s tackled that is the essence of what these Sundays should be. We were thrilled that she showed off her playwriting side, riffing on the evolution of music with her mythic, haunting play jericho, jericho, for the 4/2 ForePlay.
