Cultural Construction of Otherness
Saturday March 16
6-7pm
Fir Acres Black Box Theater

Sarah Kane’s play 4:48 Psychosis delves into questions of otherness and its representation in our culture. What are the signs we use to telegraph an individual’s seperation from social and cultural norms? How do we represent otherness in our art and our culture and how does this representation begin to define what otherness is? This panel will focus on the different ways that our culture represents, understands and constructs otherness.
