CSEAS Graduate Colloquium Lecture: Jen Shyu

"Finding and Using Your Authentic Voice" 

This will be a customized interdisciplinary workshop centered around identity and open to artists as well as non-artists. Jen Shyu will discuss and demonstrate some of her research and travels in her parents' homelands of Taiwan and East Timor, and her travels in Cuba, Brazil, East Asia and Southeast Asia. 

She will then facilitate the exploration of everyone's identity and lived experiences and how we can empower ourselves and each other through writing, listening, movement, acting, spoken word, singing, solo improvisation, duo, and group improvisation with and/or without instruments/found objects. 

Those participating should bring a pen/pencil and paper/notebook and wear comfortable clothing and shoes (no high heels). Instruments welcome but not required.
