Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies (MA) (PhD) 

The Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies MA and PhD programs focus on our collective interests in theatre, dance, performance, and cultural politics. For us, this means investigating performance both onstage and in everyday life —in theatres, galleries, rituals, the media, the streets, the political arena, mass spectacles, interpersonal interactions, etc.—to highlight the cultural, political, material and ideological dimensions of performance practices, past and present.
