Join us as we chat with Liliane about her latest projects on Tuesday, June 29 at 7 pm EST on IG Live @infullcolorus_
In the meantime, learn more about this rockstar below!
Tell us a bit about yourself and your passions
I’m Liliane Wolf; I’m an indigenous Zapotec artist and activist. I’m a queer Mexican director for theater and cofounder to IFC’s sister company, 68 Productions. I’m passionate about musical theater, women’s rights, BLM, immigration, and LGBTQIA+ rights.
What projects are you working on now?
I just finished an interactive art installation tea party called “Lead Me Down the Garden Path” that I put in at Tea NJ for my birthday. It’s a response to the 2020 need of bringing the inside outside for restaurants and a commentary on the similarities to the struggle of the undocumented Dreamer that Americans experienced in the time of Covid. Currently I’m a cantor at St. Nicolas church in Jersey City and I’ll be performing as the Librarian in Matilda with LUX Performing Arts.
What impact would you like to have on others?
I’d like to pay forward the effort, sincerity, and kindness that has been shown to me so that others may do the same for the world.
How has In Full Color impacted you?
IFC has presented me with an opportunity to see someone like myself truly have a voice, not just on stage but as a valued member of society. As a Mexican in this country, it can often feel like you’re a second class citizen; Latino history is erased here and we end up feeling out of place. It’s amazing that IFC has created a corner of the world where BIPOC can come together and have our experiences highlighted and heard.
