School of Creative and Performing Arts, University of Calgary

At the School of Creative and Performing Arts we are celebrating the distinctiveness of our three disciplines of dance, drama and music and exploring uncharted interdisciplinary terrain. With focused emphasis on the physical and intellectual demands required for the creation, performance, and study of artistic process and works, we are a home both for individuals seeking to become rigorously trained, keenly independent and sophisticated artists as well as those aspiring to become intellectually agile, deeply engaged and creative scholars.

Current Season:

Graduate student Constantine X. Anastasakis directs Eugène Ionesco’s absurdist play Rhinoceros as his MFA in Drama thesis. A treatise against conformism, a man watches as the citizens of a small town metamorphose one by one into mindless rhinoceroses.
Nov. 30-Dec. 8 in the Reeve Theatre

Inspired by the true story of Ruth Snyder, who was executed in 1928 for the murder of her husband, Sophie Treadwell’s Machinal is a powerful Expressionist play about the status of women in an increasingly mechanized society. Graduate student Zachary McKendrick directs the play as his MFA in Drama thesis.
