On Wednesday, March 27, actress Christina Chan will perform “Unbinding Our Lives" at Cheyney University’s Dudley Theatre at 7:30 pm.  The program is presented as part of the 2012-2013 Arts and Lectures Series at Cheyney University of Pennsylvania.  

Chan is a playwright whose work focuses on Asian-American women and immigration issues. In her solo performance, “Unbinding Our Lives,” she portrays three real Chinese American women from China in the 1800's and their personal stories of being sold into slavery, prostitution, and abandonment in the streets of China, thus shattering the exotic, subservient, China doll image.  Tickets are available for purchase at http://cheyney.ticketleap.com/

The 2012-2013 schedule for the Arts and Lectures Series at Cheyney University features ten programs with a variety of speakers, artists, musicians, singers and dancers from throughout the US and abroad. All programs are held on the Cheyney University campus and are open to the public.  The Arts & Lectures Series is sponsored by a grant, Strengthening Historically Black Colleges and Universities.
