T. Nikki Cesare Schotzko is Associate Professor at the Centre of Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto. Her first book is Learning How to Fall: Art and Culture after September 11, and she is currently working on a manuscript that engages the trending nihilism of a culture in the midst of a metaphoric and literal climate change.

Biography

T. Nikki Cesare Schotzko is Associate Professor at the University of Toronto’s Centre for Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies.  She coedited TDR’s special issue “Caught Off-Garde: New Theatre Ensembles in NYC (mostly)” with Mariellen R. Sandford in 2010, and, with Isabel Stowell-Kaplan and Didier Morelli in 2015, a special issue of CTR entitled “Performing Products: When Acting Up Is Selling Out.”  She is also an occasional dramaturge, having collaborated on productions in New York, Toronto, Chicago, and Morelia, Mexico. In fall 2012, Professor Cesare Schotzko organized the SSHRC- and Jackman Humanities Institute-supported conference The Future of Cage: Credo in celebration of the centenary of composer John Cage, which brought together an international and interdiscplinary array of scholars and artists including Allen S. Weiss and Pauline Oliveros and culminated in a new performance of Cage's 1976 Lecture on the Weather at Arraymusic. Her first book, Learning How to Fall: Art and Culture after September 11, engages the skewed relationship between 21st-century media technologies, perception, and pop culture, and her current research explores what she considers to be a trending nihilism, or #nihilism, within literal and metaphoric climate change.
