Collaborative Projects

There are as many ways to collaborate as there are collaborators.

At Tisch, we value the range of potential collaborations - from intra-disciplinary partnerships between two people working on a specific project to complex, trans-disciplinary relationships that are sustained over time and produce a variety of outcomes.

Here are some collaborations taking place at Tisch.

  • World Building in Games at Graduate Musical Theatre Writing

    The Graduate Musical Theatre Writing Program hosted a World Building workshop for its students, imparted by Clara Fernández-Vara, faculty at the Game Center, with facilitation from Fred Carl and Robert Lee, Musical Theatre faculty. The two-day workshop focused on three narrative principles: world building, creating characters, and understanding conflict. Used for both the development of narrative games and the creation of musical theatre works, these principles provide a natural link between the two disciplines, and offered students an opportunity to collaborate in new ways. At the conclusion of the workshop, Graduate Musical Theater Writing Program students used their developing thesis musicals as the basis for creating prototype games exploring the themes, characters and conflicts of their projects, enabling them to engage with their material from a different perspective.

  • PS3, Open Arts, Department of Dance

    The Tisch Initiative for Creative Research partnered with Open Arts and the Dance Department to collaborate with 5th graders from PS3. The students worked with Associate Arts Professor, Pamela Pietro, and Chair of Open Arts, Mary Bitel in a dance workshop held in the Fifth Floor Theater at Tisch School of the Arts.
