Performance and Space
Spring 2023
Taught By: Kyoung eun Kang and Ethan Philbrick
Section: A

CRN: 7267

Credits: 3

In this course we will explore and expand our understanding of space through a series of performances, readings, and site visits. Students will explore how place occurs through the action of performance. We will be asked to be vulnerable, wrestle with hard questions about our conditions, and attempt to translate these questionings into two iterative performances. Then for the second half of the semester, each of you will be conceptualizing a space in which your performance can be held, shared, presented, or ritualized. You will be given time and space to focus on developing your ideas, designing a unique and tender space that holds you. I propose that such space then goes beyond its functionality, defies fleeting performativity, and transfigures itself as a generous and open extension of ourselves.

Open to: All university undergraduate degree students with restrictions. Pre-requisite(s): PUID 2010 Design Studio 1, PUAD 2010 Design Studio 1, PUPD 2010 Design Studio 1 or by permission.
