Section: A

CRN: 12639

Credits: 1

"Space 1 is designed to engage students with fundamental questions of space as an environment for action, interaction and interplay between performance and spectatorship. In this course students will learn about the theories, practices and potentials of space in live performance and will be encouraged to think in space and in terms of a theatrical event where the spectator meets the performer. The course consists of two main components. -Space as a protagonist and an envelope for dramatic action, which will encourage the students to explore how space produces behavior (on and off stage) and learn skills pertaining to spatial awareness, spatial organization, and vocabularies of spatial dramaturgy. -Space as a container for the theatrical event which is aimed to develop knowledge of dramaturgical practices and an understanding of the relation between theatre and performance, the work and the audience. Students will experiment with novel non-conventional audience/performance arrangements and explore how space is used to create emotional, poetic, intellectual and spiritual experiences. "
