Credits: 3

Where do personal aesthetics/ethics, practice and producing structure meet? How do artists organize and create sustainable structures for producing/presenting their work? What’s the right approach for you? These are some of the questions we’ll address in an arts field increasingly defined by new approaches to the presentation and production. This course will introduce students to a variety of models for creative producing, including those of traditional institutions and the many ways artists are thinking/working beyond those institutions. Students will examine key texts; will have the opportunity to see and discuss live performances in NYC; and will undertake exercises and assignments aimed at investigating their own goals as part of examining the key decisions that must be made as the lead producer on a project. We will also explore a range of creative approaches to production and presentation by meeting with practitioners from several artistic fields. While the course time is listed as 6-8:30 on Wednesdays, the meeting time will be adjusted as needed on the weeks when students will be required to see performances (tentatively scheduled for 2/20, 3/27, 4/24). Additionally, all students will be required to participate in a 2-day workshop in the principles and practice of creative producing with Mara Isaacs of Octopus Theatricals. This will take place 10 AM - 5 PM on Saturday 2/23 and Saturday 3/2.
