Ricardo Pitts-Wiley is the co-founder of the Mixed Magic Theatre Company. He also contributed to an essay by Henry Jenkins called "Multiculturalism, Appropriation, and the New Media Literacies: Remixing Moby Dick." The essay appears in a book called "Mashup Cultures" by Stefan Sonvilla-Weiss and focuses on the contemporary re-staging of Melville's classic novel. Ricardo Pitts-Wiley tells Anne Strainchamps about his project and how it emerged from work he did with incarcerated youth at the Rhode Island Training Facility.
