PICS: Performing Identities Across Cultures "Recharging Home" Microteatro Performances


About This Event

As part of the CUSE grant-funded Language Matters research initiative and the PICS: Performing Identities Across Cultures strand within it, students and faculty from Colgate University, Cornell University, Syracuse University, and the University of Rochester will create and act out original performances centered on the theme "Recharging Home" to explore issues of identity, belonging, and community.

In the past several years, our concept of home has evolved immensely. Some were stuck at home for months on end, while others were unable to return home. For some, what home once used to mean has changed entirely. Identity, community, and belonging are also connected to home and these can also change, depending on where and what “home” is.

A series of 10-minute live, virtual and hybrid pieces will be performed live and on screen on the Syracuse University Quad and in SU's Schine Student Center Atrium on April 18, 2022.

Featured Guests

Live and video performances by student and faculty groups from Colgate University, Cornell University, Rochester University, and Syracuse University.
