A Visit from the British American Drama Academy (BADA)
Thursday, October 17, 4:00 PM
This event is open only to current Reed students and faculty.
David Byron, faculty member of the British American Drama Academy (BADA), will be visiting the Reed theatre department. He’ll discuss the study abroad programs at BADA, which enable Reed students to study acting and theatre in London or at Oxford for academic credit and with financial aid. Anyone unable to attend may contact David by email.
BADA, based in London during the school year and at Oxford University during the summer, was founded to enable undergraduate and graduate students from around the world to study classical theatre with leading actors and directors of the British stage. Working closely with members of the Royal Shakespeare Company, Theatre de Complicite and the National Theatre, students can choose from three different study abroad programs and, in the case of the London Theatre Program, perform in fully mounted productions in professional venues in London under the direction of professional directors.
Recent teachers include Alan Rickman, Sir Ben Kingsley, Kevin Spacey, Sir Derek Jacobi, Fiona Shaw, Jeremy Irons, James Bundy (dean of the Yale School of Drama), Deborah Warner, Mark Wing-Davey (chair of NYU’s graduate acting program at Tisch School of the Arts), John Barton (founder of the Royal Shakespeare Company) and others.
