Announcements

  • The current pandemic has required adjustments across all aspects of life and the university has been working hard over the last few months to develop a comprehensive plan for the fall semester. Announcements from President Salovey and Provost Strobel as well as Dean Chun have specified that, in the residential/remote model, performances will not take place in person, but may be reimagined to take place online.
     
    We know that the arts provide space for rest and reflection, but also to create vital conversations and to amplify voices – especially important in this current moment. We are confident that pausing in-person performance activities will not limit the voices and creative minds of the student body. And so, whatever the fall semester may hold for us, whether you are on- or off-campus, our UP team looks forward to continuing to support Yale’s artists, technicians, and producers as you explore new inventive modes of expressing and creating.

  • We in Undergraduate Production cannot adequately express the horror and sadness of the killings of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade, and Rayshard Brooks, and countless other documented and undocumented acts of violence against black bodies. Each instance is an unjust taking of a life by a system that, by its nature, harbors racism and political- and social-sanctioned violence against the black community. We must all do our part to confront these injustices head-on, and to lift up the voices in our community that have been marginalized.  Undergraduate Production stands in solidarity with the black community today, as we continue our work in supporting student art-makers.

    We have created a new resource page that holds a repository of resources for those looking to learn, looking to engage, or looking for inspiration as we work together towards the shared goal of lasting change. We invite members of our community to contact us with additional resources that you would like to see shared as we encourage continued discourse and artistic expression.
