  Jon Reimer
Fifth-year PhD Candidate


BA in Theatre Arts from Muhlenberg College


Jon Reimer is a fifth-year PhD Candidate in the Joint PhD Program of the Department of Theatre & Dance at UC San Diego and the Department of Drama at UC Irvine. 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, he partnered with Shochiku Corporation and playwright Gary Perlman to create an original English-language kabuki adaptation of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. 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 relevance amongst international perspectives of performance.

Jon is currently a Guest Lecturer in Theatre at Muhlenberg College in Allentown, Pennsylvania, for the academic school year where he is teaching Japanese Theatre, Pan-Asian Theatre, Dramaturgy/Play Analysis, and Theatre & Society.
