This course is an introduction to the research, writing, and performance techniques of solo performance. The course will present a safe environment that provides the students the tools and the courage necessary to stand-alone and perform their own material; to express their sense of truth that connects us all. For Fall 2018, course will focus on the specific theme of "NEUROSCIENCE". Students will use sources such as research materials, autobiographies, diaries, unsent letters, and stories as inspiration for their work to inquire into the role of neuroscience in our lives. This course will create a sustained community partnership with the nonprofit organization, LIGO PROJECT and DAN McCLOSKEY LAB. Ligo Project composed of multi-practice scientists and artists who explore the intersections between science and art. Dan McCloskey is a behavioral neuroscientist whose lab investigates how brain activity and organization are influenced by environmental factors and behavioral experience. No Prerequisite.
