  • Guillermo Verdecchia in Trier, 10 July
Guillermo Verdecchia (Playwright, Actor, Director, Translator from Toronto, Canada) will be talking about "Canadian Diversity and Its Discontents" in Trier, 10 July (8h, HS3), and in Saarbrücken, 11 July (16.15h, VHS, Schlossplatz, Raum 23). Guillermo Verdecchia was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, before coming to Canada with his family at the age of two. As a Latin American immigrant to North America, Verdecchia soon came to learn that there can be quite a gap, quite a rift, between Canada's official policy of multiculturalism and its practical outcome. His experience has turned him into a man of multiple theatrical-political activities, and Verdecchia's talk promises to be a rare combination of politically relevant academic reflections and theatrical performance.
