Panel Discussion: David Harrington and Wu Man in Conversation with Xiaobing Tang and Michel Hockx


Location: Decio, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center

As the Kronos Quartet and Wu Man return to perform "A Chinese Home," originally commissioned by the DeBartolo Performing Arts Center in 2009, the Liu Institute for Asia and Asian Studies presents this additional event on the eve of the concert, featuring a roundtable conversation between two of the musicians and two professors of modern Chinese culture. The discussion will explore the cultural and historical background to "A Chinese Home," relating Wu and Harrington's musical journey through recent Chinese history to literary and artistic expressions from the same time period, as studied by Tang and Hockx.

The discussion will be followed by Q&A with the audience.
