Theatre

The Department of Theatre is a vibrant community of students, staff, and faculty, guided by values of generosity, integrity, respect, and rigor. As a hub for Creative Practice Research, we are dedicated to theatre and performance both as a living art and as an interdisciplinary system of inquiry.

A Northeastern Theatre education aligns collaborative theatre-making (production, design, and performance) with academic study and practice-based research. Our students develop a rich foundation for meaningful and prosperous careers through experiential learning.

 

We are committed to the ongoing pursuit of intersectional social and racial justice.

 

We incorporate diverse methodologies, approaches, and measures of success.

 

While we engage with the moment in which we live, we are constantly evolving, learning, and adapting.

 

These are our commitments to equity, diversity and inclusion:

COMMUNITY AND GENEROSITY

We commit to fostering conversations, exchanges, and experiences that empower, spark, and challenge us to think and act responsibly and empathetically among our artistic community at Northeastern University, in Greater Boston, and beyond.

ENGAGEMENT AND COLLABORATION

We commit to deconstructing the existing barriers of exclusion to motivate and uplift; we will foster relationships across cultural boundaries to facilitate an inclusive and accessible artistic community at Northeastern University, in Greater Boston, and beyond.

CREATIVITY AND RIGOR

We commit to looking beyond received wisdom to intentionally engage with high quality and dynamic works, to ask hard questions about the world, our source materials, and who we are as people through creative exploration and self-expression.

RESPECT

We commit to acknowledging and embracing the unique identities of each and every member of our community; we promise to treat each other as equals, regardless of our differences, and to choose humanity in the face of conflict.

INTEGRITY

We commit to creating a diverse community where any individual can speak freely and honestly; we aim to recognize and use our privilege to advocate for underrepresented voices at Northeastern University, in Greater Boston, and beyond.
