Our Joint Program with Rutgers

The joint theatre program trains students in applied theatre education: set, stage, light and sound design, playwriting, improvisational theatre techniques, music ensembles, directing and performance.

Thinking about Dramaturgical Research

Research moves from attempts to understand the structure of a play, its dramaturgy, to ways of exploring historical and critical contexts that inform and energize that dramaturgy. Research asks how we can apply a knowledge of the liberal arts to the process of making a play.

Here, for example, is one way of imagining these categories:

  • Worlds of the Play
  • The Author and His/Her Worlds
  • Our World and the Worlds of the Play
  • Production History
  • Drama Criticism
  • Images and Sounds
  • Sources, Influences & Analogue
