Communication Studies end-of-quarter performances, Wed., Nov. 30

Join Communication Studies students for the following end-of-the-quarter performances.

All performances will take place in the PUB on Wed., Nov. 30. See specific times and details below. ***Please note that you can stop by any one of the performances at any time. You will most likely want to stay for 5-10 minutes.

9:30-10:20 a.m. “Building a (Critical) Wall”: In this performance, students will build a critical “Wall” made up of facts, statistics, artwork, stories, etc., which demonstrate various standpoints on the President-elect’s proposed wall. This is an interactive performance, where audience members will be able to visually respond to the wall, test their immigration knowledge, and more! ***We will most likely keep the wall up for the rest of the day for viewing.

10:30-11:20 a.m. “Behind the Screen: Exploring Online Discrimination”: In this performance, students will explore racism, sexism, homophobia, and Islamophobia on the Internet. Instead of reinforcing online discrimination, we are subverting common stereotypes through facts, statistics, critical memes, humor, and irony. Audience members will be able to interact with live computers or the faces “behind the screen.”

12:30-2:20 p.m. “Open Rights Mic: Let Go, Let Flow” **See flyer below: In this performance, students will be holding an open mic featuring live music, poetry, storytelling, and artwork exploring race, gender, ability, sexuality, as well as post-election feelings. Audience members are welcome to participate in interactive art and join us onstage.
