DENNIS WHITEHEAD DARLING

STAGE DIRECTOR

Dennis Whitehead Darling

On Directing

Theatre has the innate ability to convey feeling, provide enlightenment and inspire change.  My goal as a director is to tell emotionally engaging and provocative stories that challenge the viewer to see the world from a different perspective.  As an African American stage and music director, I am passionate about presenting transformative art that addresses issues of marginalization and challenges oppression, bigotry, and racism.
