BOSTON CENTER FOR AMERICAN PERFORMANCE is the professional extension of the Boston University School of Theatre. BCAP employs professional artists to collaborate with student artists in a way that encourages intergenerational learning not only through the forging of strong teacher/student relationships, but through the creation of artistic collaborations between artists of differing levels of experience. It is BCAP’s conviction that such collaborations will have a profound impact on the University’s educational mission, become a significant source of inspiration for the creation of new work and/or new approaches to existing work, and provide the School with a professional extension of its expanding and diverse aesthetic.
