Section: A

CRN: 13847

Credits: 2 TO 3

This hybrid studio-seminar course will utilize discourse – physical, verbal and textual – as a means for critical reflection on the act of performing. Improvisational movement and performance practice in the studio will be complemented with required reading and writing assignments. Topics include questions of representation, narrative, and cultural-situatedness inherent to performance-making; the ways meanings and meaningfulness are constructed from the various data we receive; and the varied possibilities for the audience-performer relationship. Note: This course is offered for variable credit: Students who elect to also create choreographic research projects, and who meet the pre-requisite of Intro to Choreographic Research, should register for 3 credits/MWF classes; students who do not elect to also create choreographic research projects should register for 2 credits/MW classes only. *This LDAN course can be used to fulfill an Arts program LINA (InterArts) requirement.
