Kreativity

Kreativity Diversity Troupe, kreated in 1995, is an all-inclusive performance group from the University of Maryland. The members, known as Kreators, write, direct, produce, perform and stage their own original work. The work that they kreate is centered around a single theme that is compiled into a culminating performance at the end of each semester.

Shared Graduate Dance Concert

Featuring provocative choreography by Master of Fine Arts students in dance, this concert focuses on new works in development. As the first opportunity for them to put material onstage and see what develops, it often contains the seeds of movement ideas that will be featured in their MFA Thesis programs — an unguarded exploration of their talents and interests.

Wake Up!

You’re invited to a UMD House Party, inspired by Spike Lee’s film, School Daze (1988), the musically driven film that chronicled the ins and outs of a fictitious historically black college. An original site-specific, dance theatre work co-conceived by School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies artists Meghan Bowden and Vaughn Midder, this performance challenges current UMD students to engage in topics around race, gender, class and sexuality, as seen through the lens of contemporary African American experience.

 

Macbeth

In this daring adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic, an ensemble of four actors will transform The Clarice into the deadly corridors of Dunsinane Castle. Directed by School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies artists Riley Bartlebaugh and Sean Patrick Forsythe, this promenade performance will pull the audience from the comfort of their seats and ensnare them in the meteoric rise and tragic fall of a dynasty that was never meant to be.
