As Associate Professor of Performance Studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Tony Perucci teaches courses that bring together the critical and the creative, the political and the aesthetic, the spectacular and the mundane, and the word and the act. His teaching focuses on guiding students to take risks, create collaboratively, leap into the unknown and discover The New Thing for themselves.
