Jingzi Zhao's exhibit of dance photography is available for public viewing in Hatfield Hall Tuesday–Friday, 10am–6pm, during April & May 2023.
Composed by Kamala Sankaram
Libretto by Susan Yankowitz
This piece is inspired by the story of Mukhtar Mai—a trailblazing Pakistani human rights activist who is a victim of sanctioned gang rape. She defied expectations to take her own life after the attack, deciding to live and seek justice. Her hope: open a village school for girls to learn to read and write, so that they may avoid the humiliation of signing their names with only a thumbprint.
