Cristiana Giordano and Greg Pierotti are internationally renowned personalities in their areas of expertise and through their collaboration. Pierotti has an Humanitas Price and an Emmy nomination as an actor and principal writer on Tectonic Theatre's The Laramie Project. Giordano (UC Davis) is a renowned anthropologist winner of the Victor Turner Book Prize. Relying on Theories of Affect, Giordano and Pierotti use theatrical techniques to engage with empirical questions. Their trademark workshop and lecture "Getting Caught" is a new fascinating and interdisciplinary research into Theories of Affect that create connections between theatre and material culture in a laboratory format, in which performance artists, anthropologists, students, practitioners, and scholars see their work through a new lense. Theatre practitioners learn about their practice from a cultural perspective and participants use devised techniques to analyze and write about their non-theatrical material. Their lecture and workshop, has traveled to the UK, Italy, Canada, Ecuador, and Mexico.        Click here for more information

Join us for the first annual “Young, Gifted and Black- A Black History Month Celebration”. This exciting evening of live entertainment includes performances of songs, monologues and scenes directed, produced and performed by over 30 Black Texas State artists representing the Department of Theatre and Dance. The students are dedicating the show to Miss Shirley Harris, the first Black student to graduate from Texas State University in 1967. Miss Harris received her bachelor's degree in education from Southwest Texas State and went on to teach at elementary schools for 40 years in San Antonio. As part of the evening a scholarship will be awarded to a deserving student pursing a career as a teacher. Click here for more information
