International Connections

Since its beginnings, UCI’s Drama Department has been internationally engaged in the arts, but in the past two decades this move towards a global arts engagement has been extraordinary. UCI drama professors have lectured round the world and UCI drama productions have toured many countries including England, Spain, Korea, and Romania. At home we have hosted distinguished faculty visitors and student exchanges. We also have on-going collaborations with a number of professional organizations and institutes.

In all these activities, a belief that arts education must become global in the twenty-first century guides our vision. The performing arts should have a special role in assisting people to imagine what it means to live in the new global, interconnected context. As our teaching mission, we strive to articulate a sophisticated grasp of the relationship between performance and culture in a rapidly changing climate of globalization and transnational mobility and to impart to our students the necessity for developing their own international performance literacy.

Here are some of our Activities and Accomplishments:
