BFA Directed Research: New/Extant Plays Presentations

Arnhold Hall
General Public 

This festival highlights the culminating work of the BFA Dramatic Arts students, exploring their training in technique, the depth of their critical inquiry skills, and the contextualization of their work through the lens of citizen-artist. During senior year, students design, research, and present a work that embodies these core elements. Each independent project requires the best application of students’ analytical, research, and presentation skills and performative practice and fosters both positive interdependence and individual accountability.
