Juneau’s Hannah Wolf, the daughter of Steve Wolf and Bev Ingram and a Juneau-Douglas High School and Western Washington University graduate, has received a prestigious Fulbright Scholarship to work with Romanian theatre artists, including directing, developing and translating new works with playwrights.
Wolf will start her Fulbright program after September and will stay in Romania until June 2014. She also plans to direct a Romanian play when she returns to the United States.
“My project involves helping to foster the two-way path between the U.S. and Romanian artists, so I’ll be directing over there, working on new scripts, working to translate new American plays to Romanian,” Wolf said, though that’s just part of what she’ll be doing.
Wolf will be working at The National University of Theatre and Cinematography in Bucharest, Romania.
The Fulbright will cover the entire cost of her trip, including room and board and transportation.
Wolf graduated from WWU in 2009 with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Theatre Arts. She currently lives in New York City and is the literary resident at the Vineyard Theatre, an off-Broadway theatre. She was an Artistic Intern with Perseverance Theatre for the 2010-11 season.
The Fulbright Program is a prestigious international exchange program sponsored by the U.S. government. Fulbrights have enabled nearly 300,000 participants to travel abroad to study, teach, conduct research and exchange ideas to foster understanding between Americans and people of other countries.
