The Graduate Studio serves as the experimental and experiential core of both the MA and PhD programs. In Studio, students integrate critical studies with live performance through small, focused projects. In this way, students expand their depth of knowledge in theatre history, theory, and criticism, while developing creative work that may serve as a foundation for their production specialty. We also use the studio as an opportunity to work with prominent guest artists. In the past, students have worked with Robert Wilson, Richard Foreman, Karen Finley, Blast Theory, Kamau Patton, and Big Art Group, among others.
