Brown University

Through the Department of Theatre, Speech and Dance, students may take courses in dance technique, composition, and history. We are primarily a modern dance program, but also have a strong West African dance, music and culture component.

The Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies is the intellectual and artistic center at Brown for faculty and students interested in the aesthetic, historical, literary, practical and theoretical explorations of performance in global perspective – theatre, dance, speech, performance art, and performative “roles” in everyday life. The Department’s distinguished faculty consists of leading scholars and artists who are at the forefront in researching and teaching new and innovative methodologies produced by the intersection of the study of craft and the study of history and theory.

Every season, the Department mounts five theatre productions and three dance productions. Students are active in every aspect of production - learning the rigors of craft through participation in production as well as through class work in acting and directing, dance, playwriting, movement, history, theory, design, technical theatre, intermedial performance, and performance ethnography.

A Doctoral Program in Theatre and Performance Studies, an MFA Program in Playwriting, and the Brown/Trinity MFA Programs in Acting and Directing all augment our thriving undergraduate program. Rites and Reason Theatre in Africana Studies, and myriad student theatre, dance, and performance groups on campus contribute to a vital educational environment for the study of performance.
