Theater, Dance & Media (TDM) aims to integrate historical and theoretical study with art making—a central concern of Harvard’s Report of the Task Force on the Arts. Practical production work teaches students how to navigate the collaborative process of theater making. Every year, TDM invites guest artists, all professionals in their fields, to lead the creative teams of our concentration productions. Concentration theater and dance productions enable students to combine the various skills acquired in both studio-classes and seminars under the guidance of highly skilled theater and dance professionals.
The TDM production studio frames and involves participation in Theater, Dance & Media’s twice yearly professionally directed and designed productions. The preponderance of time for this course is dedicated to the rehearsal process and performances, where the integration of theory and practice, and theater, dance, and media take place.
