American [in] Tent – June 2021

Bringing Voice to the spoken word


Interview with Stephanie Vlahos

The American [in]Tent is a collective of artists interested in speaking to the American narrative who honour the diversity and positive inclusion while freely exploring everything that ails them. In the first of our Edinburgh Fringe coverage for the 2021 festival we spoke with founder Stephanie Vlahos about American [In]Tend and what we can expect.

My story is kooky. I’ve been a stranger in a strange land going through a pandemic.

I grew up on the East Coast and have lived in Los Angeles for a number of years, and then, I moved to Edinburgh, U.K. not long before Covid hit. I clearly remember the last show I saw at the Edinburgh Festival Theatre which was  Nixon in China, late February. Who knew? The strange part of it for me has been acclimating (or acclimatising per British English) when there’s little opportunity to socialise or even interact in the most basic ways. I also miss seeing people’s expressions, it is so much easier to break barriers when you see someone smile. 

I have spent my time writing. I wrote a novel which I am adapting to podcast as a more dramatic offering. It’s kept me out of trouble and thriving in my imagination, which has always been key to my survival.
