Description

Global Express, now in its 15th year, offers an exceptional peek into literary works by contemporary is a unique opportunity for writers from around the world and performers here at Iowa to meet and work together, and gives international writers the unique opportunity to see their work performed by students from the UI Department of Theatre Arts and local community members before an American audience. All writers will be present at the performance on Thursday, September 17th then to present their work live on stage at the University.  As political issues continue to challenge the international social fabric, initiatives like Global Express (now, amazingly, in its fifteenth year!) help us to recognize our common humanity while celebrating our differences.  The Express, part dramatic reading, part solo-turn, part poetry slam, makes stops around the globe, "expressing" our common need for connection, empathy, and delight in each other.  All Aboard!
