Writer/performer Aaron Pang is an MFA candidate in the University of Iowa’s Nonfiction Writing Program. His in-development thesis Herein Lies the Truth traverses a range of disciplines: creative nonfiction, stand-up comedy, and theatre arts. The work also reckons with complex questions about disability, race, and sexuality. The conversation will include a short presentation of work-in-progress as well as a conversation with faculty members from Pang’s thesis committee—Christopher-Rasheem McMillan (Dance, Gender, Women’s, and Sexuality Studies) and Tisa Bryant (Nonfiction Writing Program)--and producing artistic director Adam Knight of Riverside Theatre where the final work will premiere in April 2024.
