Ep. 123: Meropi Peponides and Beto O'Byrne are multiethnic, multicultural people.  She's Indian and Cypriot.  He's Irish and Mexican.  They are a dynamic and fascinating couple and the founders of Radical Evolution ( a multiethnic producing collective committed to creating artistic events that seek to understand the complexities of the mixed-identity existence in the 21st Century.

In their most recent work, Loving and Loving, they explore, examine and dramatize the story of Richard and Mildred Loving, an interracial couple from rural Virginia who were arrested in 1958 for the crime of being married. Their decade-long legal struggle resulted in a landmark civil rights case decided in 1967, which upheld their right to live as husband and wife and struck down all remaining state bans on interracial marriage. Beginning in the present day and delving into the historically rich 1950’s – 60’s, Loving and Loving looks at this nearly 50-year old story from a 21st Century perspective, exploring the enduringly complex nature of intimacy, identity, and the impact of the law on our most personal decisions.

Listen as Meropi and Beto talk about their childhoods, their journeys into theater, and their hopes and dreams about creating a production company that gives voice to Multiracial, Multiethnic, and Multicultural experiences.
