Artists in the Global Majority offer a unique and vital perspective on the act and the art of performing memory onstage. A number of theatrical works have been selected to represent the broader field within and around New York City over the years 2019 to the present 2023. These works are discussed as experienced by the author, as well as how they are in conversation with one another thematically and dramaturgically. This survey of contemporary work within the field concludes with an in-depth interview of the artist Aya Ogawa discussing the role representation and formation of memory plays in their own theatrical work.
