Seeking students to engage with IACE- International Artists & Cultural Exchange, hosted by the UB Department of Theatre & Dance, bringing artists from around the world to UB, promoting interdisciplinary activities and extending dialogue into the community.
IACE-International Artistic & Cultural Exchange. The UB Department of Theatre & Dance is home to the IACE Program. Since its inception in 1994, IACE fosters a better understanding of multicultural heritages by researching, producing and presenting thought provoking, critical, innovative and interactive performing arts programs.
In a striking approach generated by Founding Director Maria S. Horne, IACE brings artists from around the world to our university, promotes interdisciplinary activities within UB, makes possible for UB to participate in renowned international events, and extends the dialogue into the community on a multitude of levels.
IACE has made possible for the Department of Theatre & Dance to participate in over a dozen international festivals, providing students with international learning experiences and UB faculty with multicultural research and development opportunities. Numerous delegations of our IACE Creative Research Team have recurrently represented UB in Argentina, Belgium, Canada, Colombia, Costa Rica, Greece, France, Mexico, Romania, Spain, and the United States.
Student researchers can benefit from feedback, workshops, and attendance to performances from peers from around the world.
