Using intimate live performances as well as web-based technology and social media platforms, this theatrical event will move through multiple spaces exploring real experiences from global voices and the poetry of everyday life. Generation (Wh)Y is a multidimensional portrait of today celebrating the perspectives, hopes, and stories of hundreds of young people from around the world. This is an immersive theatrical experience, and will involve moving between multiple spaces in the Davis Performing Arts Center.
