Writing for Performance

In the Writing for Performance track, concentrators explore the craft and sensibility of writing for live performance in the broad context of art in a changing society. Moving through a graduated series of skill-based writing classes, students additionally encounter theater history in core courses and focused seminars, engage with the practical aspects of production, and relate theatre to other disciplines. Students interested in Dance studies are encouraged to pursue that interest within the context of the Writing For Performance track.

Students wishing to enroll as concentrators in Theatre Arts and Performance Studies on the Writing for Performance track should see Professor Marcus Gardley, who serves as the Writing for Performance track advisor, in order to discuss options that will best serve their interests.
