Breaking New Boundaries with the New Works Initiative

On November 24th, 2014, the Montclair State University Department of Theatre and Dance hosted a kickoff party for the New Works Initiative. New Works started in the Dance department and has been a successful program, but the relaunch of NWI takes it from dance to theatre and acting. The new program will feature an “Artist in Residence” every three semesters and these artists will. have the chance to create and develop a new piece withe Montclair students that will also workshopped in New York City, and become apart of the theatre season at Montclair State University. This opportunity works for both the artist to create as well as the students to have a chance to perform and work in NYC during their undergraduate semesters.
