Special Programs - Generation 9/11: So Far/ So Close

The UWM Center for International Education and Peck School of the Arts host a solo performance by Chris Wolfe of “Generation 9/11: So Far / So Close,” on Friday, Sept. 30, at 6 p.m. in the Zelazo Center, room 250, 2419 E. Kenwood Blvd.
The work is a fast-paced, moving and surprisingly funny one-man drama that explores how a generation was affected by 9/11 from afar − via TV , internet and phone. Following the show, Chris encourages the audience to share stories and ask questions about the project.

Wolfe explains how he interviewed subjects for this performance, financed it via Kickstarter (crowdfunding), how audiences were different/the same in the U.S. and the U.K., and more.

Wolfe is an American expatriate living in London. A storyteller, he is primarily dedicated to writing, directing and performing solo shows. He is especially interested in issues that engage directly with the world via documentary and journalistic techniques.
