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.
