Event Description

"All the world's a stage." The way we think about the world, ourselves, and those around us affects the way we interact with others. Through drama, we can better understand ourselves and others, changing the way we interact with the world.

In this event, Yuri (Yura) Kordonsky, Professor of Directing at Yale School of Drama, and Liu Tianchi, Associate Professor at the Central Academy of Drama and Acting Coach on the popular TV show "The Birth of Actors", will discuss the dramatic arts in the east and west and how drama education can benefit performing artists as well as people from other walks of life. During the event, the professors will lead a number of exercises that help the audience experience the dramatic arts. The evening will conclude with a Q&A session.
