Matt Hosking in The Department of Theatre's production of "The Skin of Our Teeth"

The Department of Theatre at Northeastern University is multifaceted and combines performance, design, story-telling, theory, history, and innovation into one package to produce a distinctive program – all while still focusing on the human connections and the human experiences that bring theatre to life. A new CAMD-made video series, Theatre Stories, showcases what it’s like to be a student in Northeastern’s Department of Theatre – from why students are fascinated by the field to which groups and organizations they are founding and joining to enhance their growth.

This video features fourth year student , Matt Hosking, who is interested in finding the middle ground between technology and storytelling. He emphasizes how technology is altering our relationship with the world around us, despite lacking the human experience and human connection, and wants to change that, therefore he is pursuing a unique Theatre and Computer Science double major, here at Northeastern University.

I think something that people throw around a lot is to do the work… but it’s also something about finding the play in the works, finding the joy, finding what you really love…
