Theatre and dance use languages of movement, light, darkness, spoken word and deep quiet to communicate with audiences.
2013 - 2014 Season Theme: Staging Histories
How does live performance enact concerts about power, place, forgetting and remembering? How does performance unmask the past in order to reveal the present? The 2013-14 season offerings display satire, hijinks, and choreographies against stasis in order to experience history as material for transformation.
This fall, Theatre and Dance will produce a senior capstone directing project, one mainstage theatre production, Physical Approaches, class and the mainstage dance concert.

by Nikolai Gogel, directed by Robert Rosen
Bob Rosen, one of the founders of Minneapolis's legendary Theatre de la Jeune Lune, directs Nikolai Gogel's hilarious 1826 farce The Government Inspector for Macalester's main stage in November. Rosen has taught his physical theatre training class, Physical Approaches, for three years at Macalester bringing a dimension to performance training that prepares actors and dancers for self-awareness and precision in their onstage work. Rosen will be training his cast in the zany world of Gogol's satiric imagination.
