Sharing Culture Through Theater with Beyond Borders at the Project Pengyou Courtyard

February 28, 2017

For five days, 8 internationally-bound Chinese high school students met with workshop organizers, Jun Chen and Dr. Kanta Kohhar-Lindgren, at the Project Pengyou courtyard to learn communication and collaboration skills that would help them succeed as cross-cultural communicators in the United States. Students developed their skills by conducting a storytelling and art project that benefits both international communities in Beijing and themselves.

Through field trips, interviews, and interactive games, future international Chinese students worked to establish a dialogue with foreign communities in Beijing and build mutual understanding. The event culminated in a cabaret performance at the Beijing drum tower theater including comedy and dance.
