Formed in 2004, The Sixth Act provides co-curricular support for the study of drama across disciplines at MCC. To this end, The Sixth Act (1) develops co-curricular events and materials for MCC faculty and students, especially those who might teach or study plays or playwriting, and (2) provides enrichment opportunities to encourage all MCC faculty, students, and staff to see and talk about plays produced at MCC and in the Rochester area. The Sixth Act seeks as its leaders faculty, staff, and students drawn from a variety of academic disciplines and departments. The Sixth Act is supported by MCC's Creative Arts Committee and Liberal Arts Program.

Revisit the heady flights of Modernism! This event will bring together students and faculty from multiple disciplines to explore various aesthetic and scholarly impulses relevant to the modern era. Focusing primarily on the dramatic work of Gertrude Stein, presentations also will look at other art forms to glimpse better the collage-like experimentation underlining much of this stimulating, provocative period in artistic history. Refreshments will be served.
