Welcome to the
Canada Research Chair in Performance & Culture

Canada Research Chair in Performance & Culture

This website is dedicated to all aspects of Western performance in the modern era, offering resources for students and scholars, information about theatre, critical analysis and a developing database of documentation, as well as an opportunity for interacting with others on a variety of theatrical topics.

We cover Modern Theatre History -- focussing specifically on developments in Canada, as well as in the UK, America and Ireland, from 1865 to the present -- and setting this in its social context, through an interactive chronology. We offer resources for both Drama in its literary form, and theatrical Practice ranging from street performance through acting exercises.

For information about the upcoming International Conference “Carnival, ‘People’s Art’ and ‘Taking Back the Streets’” hosted at York University in Toronto please visit: www.Yorku.ca/CarnivalConference

This site is sponsored by the the Canada Research Chair, whose work it also showcases. It is -- and will continue to be -- very much a work in progress.
