Program Information

School:State University of New York at Stony Brook
Faculty:College of Arts and Sciences
Field of Study:Drama and Dramatics/Theatre Arts, General
Description:Theatre arts is traditionally the study of the dramatic event typified by productions associated with the New York stage, whether it be Broadway or Off-Broadway. In recent years, however, the concept of theatre has expanded to include performances from around the world, extending from the most sacred rituals to the most profane performance art. What was once the study of the live actor before a live audience now requires an investigation into the impact of technology and media on the practice of theatre. This exciting and expanding discipline defines the DepartĀ­ment of Theatre Arts at Stony Brook, where students can study acting, design, and directing; immerse themselves in playwriting, dance, and media; and explore interactive computing technologies as a tool of study and a means of personal expression.
