Isaiah celebrates their New York producing debut at the Cell Theater in Chelsea. Islands Never Say, was created and directed by Juen Kang, a theatre artist from Seoul Korea. The performance art piece explores the patterns of plant life through human movement. Four actors express the movements of plants in relation to the human condition. Through silence and the unknown we are able to transcend language and culture to discover our relationship to nature and to each other.
Isaiah was included as a voiceover artist in the youth keynote address for the annual Geneva Peace Week. The Geneva Peace Week is Geneva is a global hub for governance and international cooperation. It hosts 38 international organizations, a thriving community of non-governmental organizations and renowned academic and research institutions. It is also a diplomatic center with near universal representation of states. Together, all these actors work for peace, rights and well-being, touching the lives of individuals across the world. Geneva Peace Week offers an opportunity to connect and highlight the work of these actors and to expand the space for building peace and resolving conflict through dialogue and negotiation.
Geneva Peace Week emphasizes that each and every person, actor and institution has a role to play in building peace and resolving conflict. It recognizes that peacebuilding occurs in many different contexts and cuts across disciplines and sectors. In this sense, Geneva Peace Week breaks down professional silos in order to enable creative responses to violence, exclusion and insecurity.
By synchronizing meetings and events on different topics related to the promotion of peace during one week, Geneva Peace Week maximizes synergies between organizations in Geneva and their international partners, focusing on the cross-cutting nature of peace.
Isaiah starts their post graduate career with an exciting new chapter. They signed with Maura Maloney and Kirsten Walther at CESD in the on-camera and commercial department!
