As Moravian University continues to grow, our first Master of Fine Arts in Performance Creation fits right in with our mission to deliver highly skilled graduates with professional education steeped in the liberal arts. Our first arts offering, in partnership with Touchstone Theatre, is a unique opportunity for artists to hone their vision and see their work through from artistic impulse to realization on stage. Diverse cohorts of performers, designers, choreographers, directors, and writers will embark on this full-time, two year program that is part arts incubator, part apprenticeship. Our artists will create original solo and ensemble performance in both production and lab settings, teach theatre in the community, get hands-on experience in arts administration and production, and perform internationally.
Next cohort begins August 2021—now accepting applications!
Get Your Revolution Going
Our MFA in Performance Creation is for artists who want to create their own performances, instead of playing a supporting role in someone else’s vision.
Learn from pioneers in ensemble theatre.
Students will be taught by award-winning, working professionals—practicing artists who know the craft from daily engagement with performance creation. The Touchstone Theatre Ensemble has been a leader in the field of ensemble theatre, focusing its energies on the development of new original performances and community-based projects for nearly 40 years.
