The School of Theatre and Film seeks to explore the cultural landscape and discover new ways to participate within it, as in the site-specific performance Transfix by Vessel, directed by Rachel Bowditch. This is performed by School of Theatre and Film undergraduates and graduate students.
In addition to creating new works, the School of Theatre and Film looks at the future by re-envisioning the past by adapting and re-interpreting “classic” works, as in this adaptation of the Greek myth of Iphigenia in Caridad Svich’s Iphigenia Crash Land Falls on the Neon Shell that was Once Her Heart.
The School of Theatre and Film fuses degrees from across the disciplines to explore the future of the theatre and film arts.
Am:I, a new play by MFA student in Dramatic Writing Daniel Frey, explores a relationship between human and non-human, imagining a future of human experience – part of the mission of the School of Theatre and Film.
