‘They Call Me Q!’ Performance by Qurrat Ann Kadwani

February 20, 2014 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

A solo show is always tough to pull off. A solo show that traces the evolution of a multicultural identity from birth to adulthood? That’s a gargantuan task. And yet, it’s the one Qurrat Ann Kadwani has boldly set herself in the first play she has written, and it’s a testament to her poise and charisma as an actress that she pulls it off competently. In They Call Me Q!, Kadwani charts the rocky path to self-discovery as a culturally-confused Indian girl raised in the Bronx. It’s a skillful though somewhat cursory ride. Kadwani plays 13 characters, including herself, transitioning between her traditional Indian mother to tough-talking Latina friends with aplomb. As a New York-raised South Asian, I can attest to the authenticity of her impeccable accents and the simultaneous comfort and claustrophobia she experiences growing up in a culture “where your business is everybody’s business.” However, Kadwani has so much emotional ground to cover that her narrative often seems rushed and her characters don’t often graduate from the one-dimensional. While currently a nimble, polished production, what They Call Me Q! could really use is some breathing room. The ideas and the actress deserve it. Indian women, Latina classmates, Caucasian teachers, Black friends, male/female - a voice for the universal struggles for identity and acceptance that are experienced by all nationalities. “A jazzy gem…ranks with the monodramas of John Leguizamo, Spalding Gray, Camryn Manheim...” 60 minutes...13 Characters...1 Woman...What a performance this will be!

Make it Fun for Everyone

February 20, 2014 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Make it Fun for Everyone Thursday, February 20th 7pm, Reeve Ballroom B/C Open to campus Mike Domitrz presents the one-person show sharing how-to skills for Asking First (verbal consent), Being a Friend (bystander intervention), and Opening a Door (properly supporting survivors and helping more survivors come forward). An interactive and inclusive approach is woven throughout the event (from role-playing to characters on stage). Mike Domitrz (a leading authority on consent, bystander intervention, healthy dating, and sexual assault awareness) understands college audiences providing an uplifting and entertaining discussion on sensitive issues. Through his role-playing with audience members and his portrayal of intriguing characters on stage, Mike turns what is often labeled as a “silent” issue into an engaging and thought-provoking event. While most people simply “make their move” on a date, Mike shows your students why “Asking First” and getting consent makes all the difference! Plus, students discover how to “Be a Friend” by appropriately intervening in potentially dangerous situations with their peers (especially when alcohol is involved). Through it all, everyone gains a greater level of admiration and respect for survivors of sexual assault. In doing so, each student discovers how to properly provide support for survivors by “Opening the Door” for those he/she cares about. Attendees are given skills to instantly use in their own relationships. Males and females from all cultures, backgrounds, sexual orientations, and diverse populations appreciate Mike’s sincerity and honesty. This program is part of the campus campaign, Umatter, which develops skills and provides information to increase bystander intervention and decrease high risk behaviors. Cosponsored by Greek Life, Pepsi Fund, Speaker Series.
