This video documents "One Vision, Many Voices", Cornell's annual orientation program for first year students, which augments the Provost's First Year Reading Project. CITE's interactive scenario, "Being Antigone", contemporizes themes and relationships from Sophocles' Antigone, the text for the '03 Reading Project. The interactive theatre medium stimulates dialogue from multiple points of view about how to listen to and learn from one another when we profoundly disagree. All first year students attend the program during the first three weeks of the semester. For more information about the scenario and the program's "learning points", see the attached document "Introduction_to_CITE"... About CITE: www.arts.cornell.edu/cite ...
