The Muses - Dance Nation by Clare Barron

Somewhere in America, an army of pre-teen competitive dancers plots to take over the world. And if their new routine is good enough, they’ll claw their way to the top at the Boogie Down Grand Prix in Tampa Bay. But in Clare Barron’s raucous pageant of ambition and ferocity, these young dancers have more than choreography on their minds, because every plié and jeté is a step toward finding themselves, and a fight to unleash their power.

UTAS - TDPS Backwards

Is there a song you’ve been dying to perform that traditionally wouldn’t be sung by someone who looks like you? TDPS Backwards is here to shatter those gender norms and give students a space to sing ANY broadway song they want regardless of gender identity, race, age, etc.

Henson Awards Showcase

The School of Theatre, Dance and Performance Studies hosts an annual competition and recipients are awarded funds to create a puppet project or performance. The Jim Henson Fund for Puppetry was established by the Henson family to honor the memory of Jim Henson (1960), creator of the world famous Muppets. 

Second Season: "I've Been a Woman"

This original theater piece follows two souls who are repeatedly reincarnated in Black women’s bodies during feminist movements of the past, present and future. As these embodied souls reconnect with one another across three distinct time periods, they struggle to reconcile the realities of their race, gender and sexuality within societies that seek to deny their humanity.
