Theater Arts at Caltech presents a virtual showcase of six storytellers sharing their passion for science with the Caltech community. They will spin tales from what it's like to fall in love in a new language, resiliency, and the curative powers of Eastern traditions, to searching for home in the laboratory, and the paywalls and power of white privilege in science.   

  • Kate Radford G1
  • Heidi Klumpe G7
  • Stephanie Cortez '22
  • Emily Choe '26
  • Tanmay Gupta '26
  • Jiwoo Kim '21

The presenters have been working with Brian Brophy, the Director of Theater Arts at Caltech, for the past ten weeks. Brophy's emphasis has been on crafting their stories with a focus on content as well as proper vocal techniques (tone, pitch, delivery, articulation, tempo, rhythm) and non-verbal communication, with relaxation exercises and peer-to-peer critiques.

This event is free and open to the public.
