"Chance Favors the Prepared Mind": Fireside Chat with RC Faculty Janet Hegman Shier

Monday, November 11, 2013

Greene Lounge, East Quad

In another installment of the RC Fireside Chats with Faculty, Janet Hegman Shier will speak about how her professional and her personal life intersect;  that is,  how directing plays with an eclectic methodology (drawing from Brecht, Boal, and Shier) for 29 years has changed her as a person. She will address  theater for social action,  how the personal is political, and survival tools one gains by mindfully attending to three ongoing processes involved in creative work: perception, production, and reflection.

Janet is the Head of the RC German Language Program and the founder and director of the Deutsches Theater program, which produces a play in the German language each year.
