A Citizen Artist

Robin Becker Dance toured Vietnam with Into Sunlight.

In our February issue’s Higher Ed column, we hear about how Hofstra professor Robin Becker brought Into Sunlight, her evening-length work about war, to Vietnam.

“I tend to take on big topics,” says Becker. “I believe in an artist being relevant to their time. I heard Yo-Yo Ma describe himself as a ‘citizen artist.’ I love that phrase.”

Check out this excerpt from Into Sunlight.
