The Diversity Theater Performance Group would like to extend an invitation for all members of the University of Washington Bothell community to attend their rehearsal this Fri., May 18. The rehearsal, which will be held in UW-01, room 020,”will be a great way to compliment the diversity work currently going on around the campus.”
It is intended to serve as preparation for the formal event, “Diversity Theater Workshop & Lecture Demo,” which is scheduled to take place on Fri., May 25, at 3 pm in UW-02, Room 005.
Through the art of movement, performance, and expression, Professor Kanta Kochhar-Lindgren’s Diversity Theater Performance Group will engage students, faculty and staff in a critical discussion about how we collectively define “diversity” on our campus. The Diversity Theater group will address Feminist, Queer, Disability, Race, Ethnicity and Age Theaters and will reflect on how these genres shed new light on identity construction as a performance while challenging socially accepted assumptions.
The lecture demo will include an interactive dialogue following the performance to engage the audience in a collaborative conversation on how the UWB campus performs diversity through our daily interactions with each other and the spaces we inhabit.
