Department News - Fall 2015
Congratulations to director Barbara Wallace Grossman, choreographer Daniel McCusker, and the entire cast and crew of Daybreak, which was performed in the Balch Arena Theater this fall. A haunting depiction of trauma and its aftermath, Joyce Van Dyke's Daybreak is based on the true story of two survivors of the Armenian Genocide. They were privileged to host a number of post-show discussions with distinguished scholars, historians, physicians, artists, and humanists about the play and the issues that it raises. The show was well-attended by members of the Armenian community, Tufts' students and faculty, and President Monaco, who described Daybreak as a "powerful performance".
The Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies is proud to be a part of
the Tufts' new Film and Media Studies program.
The program will feature many Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies electives,
including Lecturer Jaclyn Waguespack's Dance on Camera, in which students take
dance and movement concepts outside of studio walls and into the community
through site-specific collaborative video projects.
This past July, the nine-member student cast of Shakespeare's
Richard III—the Department of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies' spring 2015 production—traveled to Grahamstown, South Africa
to perform in and experience its annual arts festival. Grahamstown's
Festival is an eleven-day celebration
of both indigenous and imported talents, including traditional theatre and
spoken word performances, dance, music, and visual arts exhibits.
