The Pande-Mic Project
A collective creation. A new artform. A “mic” for youth to voice the multiple ways in which the pandemic has reshaped their identities, relationships, health and their place in this fragile “new-normal”. Merging authenticity with poetic expression, the piece invites us all to a moving intergenerational conversation.

All performances will be performed LIVE on Zoom!
*A pre-show instruction email with the Zoom link will be sent closer to the show date upon registration.*

March 25, 26, 27 | 8pm-10pm EDT
March 28 | 2pm-4pm EDT
March 31, April 1 | 8pm-10pm EDT

Because of COVID, the department has decided to make this show a free event, and if possible, attendees may also pay-what-they-can. Guests may donate any amount they are comfortable with to support the production.
