"It is not a coincidence, in my opinion, that the enemies of science also tend to be the enemies of art," says Jamil Khoury, AM'92, artistic director of Chicago's Silk Road Theatre Project. Learn more about the common ground between art and science as he and other playwrights discuss Silk Road's current production The DNA Trail. Inspired by genetic DNA testing, the eclectic piece, made up of one-act plays by seven different playwrights, explores how the double helix interacts with culture to shape identity.
