The School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies presents our next Experimental Performance Series production on October 28th and 29th! This installation features the following original works created, performed, and produced by students.

LivieJanae (B.A. Dance ’23): “FIXED”
“A Dance Drama. A fictional story line based on the exhausting reality of many.”

Casie Curry (B.A. Dance ’23): “A Series of Essays”
“A Series of Essays is a performance hybrid exploring different trains of thoughts from one pivotal moment. With an existential lens of life, how can someone navigate their future?”

Courtney Simmons (B.A. Theatre ’23): “A Musical Love Letter”
“A conglomerate of musical theatre songs musical theatre lovers know and love put to new lyrics. Especially made with people of color in mind, this love letter to musicals, to UMD, and to everything we students have learned here is meant to be taken with love and with a grain of salt. We aren’t taking ourselves too seriously. Have fun, enjoy the show.”
