On Monday, April 18, from 4-7 p.m., students and faculty from Syracuse University, Colgate, Cornell, U Rochester, OCC and SUNY Oswego will perform their original plays in tents on the quad, all centered on the theme “Recharging Home: What Does Home Mean to You?” In addition, ten video performances will be displayed on the Schine Atrium wall between 10-2 and posted again on Instagram (@picsplayssu) beginning at 8 p.m. These 10-minute live and digital micro-performances are part of PICS: Performing Identities Across Cultures, part of the CUSE-grant funded Language Matters Research Initiative. All PICS 2022 performances are multicultural and bring forth themes related to diversity, equity, inclusivity, belonging and social justice. Some of these will be performed in other languages (Spanish, IGBO, Setswana), most in English, and some bilingual (French/Spanish/German or Pakistani with English).
