Biography

Jon Reimer is a first-year PhD student. He received his BA in Theatre Arts at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Prior to coming to UCSD, he lived abroad in Japan for over seven years, during which time he worked primarily with Tokyo International Players (TIP) as a director, performer, and member of their Board of Governors. With TIP, in 2010 he partnered with Shochiku Corporation to create an original English-language kabuki adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, the development of which included having him and an international cast trained by professional kabuki actors in the techniques of their performance style. His most recent work was directing a Bollywood-inspired production of the musical Into the Woods, which included re-orchestrations of the music to include traditional Indian instruments. Jon's research interests include traditional and modern Japanese performance, Meisner-based acting techniques, and cross-cultural theatre. He is specifically interested in interculturalized Japanese theatre and its increasing relevance amongst international perspectives of performance.
