Performing Arts

Theater

Theater, in its collective nature, is an extremely peculiar art, able to work both on the individual, by strengthening self-awareness and talent, and on the collectivity, by promoting team-work and personal interaction, and this is exactly the kind of outcome that John Cabot University Theater area wants to promote through the JCU Theater Society and the Performing Arts Company.

JCU Theater Society

Daniel Roy Connelly

The students' experience in the JCU Theater Society will be enriched by a close analysis of the medium itself, through the study of classical, modern and contemporary pieces, as well as through practical exercises and lectures by expert speakers working in the field. The students' journey will eventually be completed by an annual performance from one of the pieces analyzed. So not only the students will be able to gain a theoretical understanding of the art of theater, but they will also develop the practical skills to be part of this immensely rich and, at the same time, enriching world.
