What is ensemble-based devising? How can one use already existing texts as a jumping off point for the thematic exploration of a current political, social, or personal topic? This course is an opportunity for BFA third year students to work with professional teaching artists from Waterwell on an original work of theater, using existing/classical text as a supportive lens to explore contemporary themes. The class takes you through the Waterwell's method of creating theater from the ground up, working collaboratively as dramaturgs, actors, writers, and directors. All students will be involved in every aspect of the creative development, regardless of disciplinary focus. Students will be both building relationships with industry professionals and learning disciplinary skills. Additionally each week students have the opportunity to synthesize the skills and techniques they have been learning in their requisite foundations courses and their elective courses. This course will culminate in presentation of an adaptation created using Waterwell's methods and process.
