Daphnie is currently researching the Afro-Latinx experience in theatre, which analyzes the discourse of race in performance-with particular interest in Latinx and Black Theatre. The focal point of her dissertation was the Afro-Latinx experience within the play Platanos & Collard Greens. She also focuses on Theatre for Social Change perspectives especially for Latinx Theatre, Latin American Theatre, Black Theatre, & Theatre of the Oppressed. Plus theories and practices of Hip Hop Theatre and Applied Theatre.
