Theater artists Ping Chong and Talvin Wilks return to the theater department on April 22 at 4 p.m. in the Rand Theater for a conversation about theater and social transformation that is free and open to all.

They will be joined by theater professor Priscilla Page.

Chong is a recipient of the National Medal of Arts and a ground-breaking theater artist. He and Wilks, a frequent collaborator of Chong’s as well as a theater artist/activist in his own right, spent much of last spring as guest artists of the department.

The conversation will link their ground-breaking piece, Collidescope 2.0 and the topics of race relations, history and politics to their latest endeavor, Collidescope 3.0.
