Prompted is a collection of poems, stories and songs written by former Writers in Performance cast members who continued to meet in pursuit of their creative writing goals. They causally referred to themselves as Magic Makers, and it stuck. They are Yvette N. Beshier, Mario Giacalone, Javan Howard and Rashmi Singh. The four of them gathered at the Lost and Found Lab in early spring of 2022 and spontaneously recorded this sampling of the writing they have done as a group.
The Writers in Performance workshop, directed by Mario Giacalone, is designed to give writers the opportunity to explore performing their written pieces. Whether they are playwrights, poets, monologists, writers of prose, or spoken word artist, this workshop gives the writers an opportunity to create a performance piece out of their writings. Workshop participants are chosen on the strength of their writing plus either performance ability, or willingness to explore that aspect of creativity. The workshop mixes professionals with students. Professional actor, director and teacher, Mario Giacalone, is the Facilitator and Director of the Writers in Performance program. Giacalone, the Program Director at BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center, has taught acting in New York City for over ten years and has directed both stage and film.
