On Monday, April 24th the Seattle Repertory Theatre is partnering with UW the School of Drama and Communications Department to organize a FREE discussion panel for the UW and greater Seattle community. This panel of Seattleites will discuss the past and present resistance movements led by youth, in part reflecting on connections to Seattle Repertory Theatre’s production of Here Lies Love (including the Marcos regime and the People Power Revolution). Join us at 7:30pm in Communications 120 (4109 E Stevens Way NE) to hear from some of Seattle scholars about the power of youth resistance.
Co-moderated by School of Drama PhD candidate, Monica Cortes Viharo.
