Welcome to the Five College Performance Studies group! We are an interdisciplinary community of scholars and artists in the Pioneer Valley area of Western Massachusetts. We work, study, and perform at the Five Colleges, which are: Amherst College, Hampshire College, Mount Holyoke College, Smith College, and the University of Massachusetts Amherst.
Check out the various performance-related courses and workshops offered in the area as well as upcoming events and summer programs. During the academic year, faculty and graduate students also participate in seminars focused on contemporary issues in performance studies.
