Writing the Body
Writing the Body
In this course we will examine the dialogue between the language of the performing body and the written word. Our goals will be to enhance our understanding of the human body through technical practice, experiential anatomy, and ways of writing that respond to and deconstruct the experience of embodiment. Daily technique classes, readings, writings, and performance assignments will encourage a synthesis of personal embodied experience and the words that express that experience. Personal essays, poetry, and several compositional works will culminate in a final performance of works created during the term.

Performance/Social Activism
Radical Humanity: Performance and Social Activism
In this course we will cover the history of performance art and the dynamic power of activism; we will focus primarily on the collaborative creation of performance infused with a social conscience. Content will range from political science to women and gender studies to civil rights. Looking at art-making through the eyes of pivotal historical figures in addition to contemporary artists, we will gather techniques to develop solo and group performances. Readings, films, journal writing, and studio research will be an integral part of this highly experiential class.
