Latino/a Performance Symposium The [email protected] Performance Symposium will engage students and public in dialogue around issues of [email protected] performance and ethics of identity and representation.
(1)

The [email protected] Performance Symposium will engage UT students, including those in The Department of Theatre & Dance and beyond, in dialogue around issues of Latino/a performance and ethics of identity and representation. The symposium will be taking place Saturday, April 12th through Sunday, April 13th. This will also include a viewing of the Tony award winning musical In the Heights presented by The Department of Theatre and Dance. Activities include open panels and workshops with professional performance companies, staged readings, talk backs, and opportunities to create bonds with UT Austin and greater Austin performance community. We are including members of the Austin community as participants in order to enrich the dialogue, though the main participants are UT students. We will create a welcoming environment for students’ voices and opinions. The Theatre and Dance Department will also host students from The University of Texas at Pan American to work with us in a staged reading of And the Earth did not Devour Him by Tiffany Ana Lopez.

Mission: Enhance dialogue surrounding topics of Identity & Representation.

Meet the guest artist!

Dr. Brian Eugenio Herrera is, by turns, a writer, teacher and scholar-presently based in New Jersey, but forever rooted in New Mexico. Brian's work, both academic and creative, examines the history of gender, sexuality and race within and through U.S. popular performance. Brian has published essays or reviews in an array of publications, including Modern Drama, Theatre Journal, Ecumenica, Comparative Drama, and The Gay and Lesbian Review. His autobiographical solo show I Was the Voice of Democracy premiered in 2010 in Albuquerque. In 2013, Brian launched two new storywork shows, Boy Like That and Touch Tones. In 2012, Brian joined the faculty of Princeton University as Assistant Professor of Theater in the Lewis Center for the Arts. His first book, Latin Numbers: Playing Latino in Twentieth Century U.S. Popular Performance, is forthcoming from University of Michigan Press.
