UCalgary’s School of Creative and Performing Arts Season Announcement

Vibrant dance, drama, music, and interdisciplinary performances take the stage in 2017-18 

The School of Creative and Performing Arts (SCPA) at the University of Calgary has announced an exciting program of 20 dance, drama and music performances for the 2017-18 season.

The season combines familiar discipline-specific programming with ambitious new interdisciplinary initiatives. The wide variety of productions, performances and presentations that make up the season showcases recognized international talent, key Canadian artists, and the school’s impressive roster of remarkable faculty, staff and students.

“The School has evolved and matured since it was formed in 2013, and this is evident in this year’s programming,” says SCPA Director Bruce Barton. “There’s an increased clarity of focus, a new scale of ambition, and a strong emphasis on exploring the place and function of the arts in our current historical moment. The creative and performing arts have never been more relevant and important for contemporary societies, and the SCPA is exploring that role in so many ways this season.”
