Cecilia J. Pang, PhD in Dramatic Art-Directing, University of California at Berkeley; MA in Theatre Arts, San Francisco State University; BA in English, University of Guelph, Ontario, Canada. CU faculty member since 2003.
According to Cecilia, “My research/creative work philosophy is rooted first and foremost in my passion for making art. I want to keep my art vital by exploring creative new form and content and by venturing into unconquered territories; to take the road less traveled. I follow this dictum, as a director/filmmaker, by striving to awaken the powers of thought, feeling, passion, inspiration and aspiration, through creations of daring new visions and thinking “outside the box.”
