Spring 2020: Remote Performance Projects



The Department of Theater believes that challenge and creativity are at the core of all great work in the performing arts. To that end, we are eager to support students interested in safely and prudently creating work this spring that capitalizes on the opportunities presented by remote communication. Examples of this type of work might include:

  • The creation and recorded performance of a radio play
  • The development of solo, site-specific performance projects
  • A video/spoken word archive documenting responses to our unprecendented situation

Where applicable and appropriate, these types of projects may benefit from faculty mentorship and/or limited financial support (maximum of $100, along the lines of a typical department Studio Lab project). Depending on the circumstances, students undertaking remote projects may be eligible to receive production credit for their work.

Students interested in proposing a remote performance project for the spring 2020 term should submit an application to the department by Monday, April 6 at 5:00 pm; proposals should be emailed to Milena Zuccotti, and should include the following information:

  • Proposal description
  • Proposed artistic collaborators
  • A vision of how the department could best support your project

Questions may be directed to the Director of Theater Jamie Horton.
