Faculty of Arts & Science
Centre for Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies
U of T's Centre for Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies is home to Canada's largest and longest-running graduate programs in these disciplines. Located in downtown Toronto, the epicentre for the performing arts in Canada, the centre draws specialists from across the University, including those from Cinema, Classics, Comparative Literature, English, French, German, Italian, Medieval Studies, Slavic and Spanish & Portuguese, as well as renowned colleagues from the University's three undergraduate drama programs. Over the course of the year, two performance venues are transformed into laboratories where students and faculty experiment with innovative projects that can range from an exploration of Elizabethan rehearsal techniques to the legacy of historical avant-garde in contemporary theatre, from the translation of contemporary texts across cultures to an investigation of the role of tears. Your donation will support a vibrant academic and creative forum for the theory and practice of performance.
