Welcome from TDM

Welcome to Theater, Dance & Media. With increased intensity during the last decade, the performing arts have become a powerful and dynamic arena for artistic innovation and social debate. We invite you to be part of this growingly vibrant and global community of cultural change-makers! 

By combining practical studio training in theater, dance, and new media technologies with the study of the history and theories of performance, the TDM curriculum offers you the unique opportunity to enhance your creative skills and critical-thinking abilities at the same time, in collaboration with worldwide renowned practitioners and scholars from the American Repertory Theater, the Harvard Dance Center, and myriad departments in the Arts and Humanities. 

The undergraduate program in TDM also provides a home for a wide range of thought-provoking master classes and guest lectures at Farkas Hall and the Harvard Dance Center, which both welcome prominent artists and visionary intellectuals to share their work in and on the many interconnected performing arts disciplines. TDM opens up a world of invaluable creative possibilities, through both student-generated and professionally-led productions. 

Whether you want to prepare for a career on or behind the stage, or pursue further studies in the finest Master’s or Graduate programs around the world; whether you’ve always wanted to take a professional acting, directing, playwriting, or choreography class; whether you’re thirsty to learn more about the performance history of Shakespeare or reflect on the inextricable connection between race, gender, and performance--TDM is for you.

We welcome you to visit our concentration home in Farkas Hall for a tour of its state-of-the art theater, studio, seminar hall, and scene-building shop and to attend our open houses and concentration information sessions. We look forward to meeting you!
