The Department of Theater aspires to transform students through immersion in the challenging, unpredictable, and exhilarating reversals of the creative process. As a close-knit, collaborative group of artists and scholars, we endeavor to ignite collaborative engagement, informed observation and rigorous experimentation, infused with a far-reaching sense of wonder, curiosity, and play. We venture to serve Colgate and the surrounding community by creating theater and dance performances that awaken feeling, interrogate assumptions, and sharpen our perception of a complex world.
