Storytelling for Scientists: "The Liminal Zone"
- Public Event
Theater Arts at Caltech presents a virtual showcase of four storytellers sharing their passion for science with our Caltech community.
- Emily Choe, undergraduate (class of 2024)
- Stephanie Cortez, undergraduate (class of 2022)
- Tanmay Gupta, undergraduate (class of 2024)
- Kate Radford, PhD candidate in biochemistry & molecular biophysics
The presenters have been working with Brian Brophy, the Director of Theater Arts at Caltech, for the past ten weeks. Brophy's emphasis has been on crafting their stories with a focus on content as well as proper vocal techniques (tone, pitch, delivery, articulation, tempo, rhythm) and non-verbal communication, with relaxation exercises and peer-to-peer critiques.
The theme this term has been communicating complex social and scientific narratives, and how scientists deal with citizen science and democracy in open forums.
This event is free and open to the public.
