The Central State University Department of Fine and Performing Arts and Title III present
Yes I Can – Healing Through Expression
The 2020-21 CSU Performing Arts Season begins on November 13th and 14th with an original performance work, Yes I Can- Healing Through Expression. The production is a collaboration between the Title III Theatre Arts Program, the CSU Counseling Services Center, and the University’s NAMI chapter. The program presents a tapestry of narratives told in words and dance that explore the individual challenges, surprises and successes of being a Central State University student in the midst of protest and pandemic.
Yes I Can – Healing Through Expression is developed by director John Fleming, writer Phillitia Charlton, video coordinator Elias Kelley and counselor Sonia Hunt. The script is written by CSU students and features dances from Praise in Motion, Everett Little and Flag Dance expressions by Jaton Brame. Music is provided by keyboardist Tucki Bailey and percussionist Djimon Smith.
The event takes place in the Paul Robeson Cultural and Performing Arts Center each evening at 7:30. Seating is limited to 150 attendees. Audiences are required to wear masks and will be seated to enhance social distancing. Yes I Can – Healing Through Expression can also be streamed live at www.centralstate.edu.
