Episode details

On the 11/16/22 edition of Dr. Andy’s Poetry and Technology Hour:

It’s a full house! Dr. Andy’s esteemed first guest is Erika Chong Shuch, 2022 Granada Artist-in-Residence at UC Davis. Shuch discusses working with students in a devised process, and expanding the “creativity prompts” of stage directions into full-fledged narratives, for The Fall Show. Next, UC Davis arts administrator Michael French shares upcoming events in the arts, heeding the calls of Davis-area listeners wanting some extra creative enrichment. Finally, students Luke Albert, Amber-Elise Harris, Abbie Hoi, Aria Liang, Geetika Mahajan, Bianca Mondragon, Viviana Padilla, Maeta Phoupraseut, Alondra Ramirez, and Estaina Ortiz bravely share original poems as contracted by Dr. Andy’s first-year seminar Bravery Studies: Three Poems A Week.

Erika Chong Shuch is a performance maker, choreographer and director whose topic-driven ruminations coalesce into imagistic assemblages of music, movement, text, and design. Interested in expanding ideas around how performance is created and shared, Shuch’s work has been performed in city halls, theaters, industrial office spaces, diners, parking lots and food courts. As the Fall 2022 Granada Artist in Residence, Shuck is directing a UC Davis production titled The Fall Show.
