Motifs

In the performing arts, a motif is a short passage that has symbolic importance to the larger work. Motifs are the building blocks through which a piece of music, theatre, or dance constructs its central themes and ideas. On these pages, we share stories about the students, faculty, initiatives, and performances at SMTD – these are our motifs, the individual parts that comprise the whole and make SMTD the extraordinary place that it is.
