How to Be From Everywhere and Nowhere
“Who are you when you’re from everywhere and nowhere,” asks writer and performer Elizabeth Liang in her live show Alien Citizen: An Earth Odyssey. One SDSU Community is proud to present this funny and poignant one-woman show about growing up as a dual citizen of mixed heritage to San Diego State. On Thursday, April 16 at 5pm, Liang will enter the stage of the Aztec Student Union Theater and take her audience with her to places in Central America, North Africa, the Middle East, and New England—places that feel “other” to her because she is the “other.” Don’t miss this free show and the subsequent Q&A with Liang, a global citizen!
