Spring 2019

Taught By: Katherine Freer

Section: AX

CRN: 7639

Credits: 4

This course examines the use of film, digital video, and interactive technology in live theater and performance over the last 100 years. Investigating different techniques and technologies, students will become familiar with how design principals go hand in hand with the systems required to execute a successful design. Students will explore the history and evolving aesthetic language as well as the tools of multimedia designers. This seminar highlights the work of exceptional theater designers, such as Erwin Piscator, Wendall Harrington and Finn Ross, and uplifts the intersection of artistry and technical knowledge. It also explores the various roles video takes in live performance; multimedia vs intermedia. Where multimedia is more part of the aesthetic world and intermedia is so integral to the storytelling process it becomes a character. This seminar involves reading, writing, critical response, screenings, guest lecturers, and theater viewing assignments that culminate in a final collaborative project on multimedia design. This course fulfills the media/performance course requirement for Theater majors.
