Transmedia: Performance Art I

A concise definition of performance art has yet to be established, however, most people would agree on two points: there are no rules and one may borrow from anywhere to generate new ideas and pieces. In this introductory course, students will learn how to develop and produce solo and collaborative performance art works for a variety of contexts. Emphasis will be placed on honing conceptual skills rather than refining one’s technique. Attention will be paid to developing ideas and images and translating them into time based-pieces employing a process of layering text, movement, and/or audio/visual elements. Students will be encouraged to look for inspiration from a variety of sources, including popular culture, current events, art and the routines of everyday life. In addition to presenting and critiquing individual assignments, class time will also be devoted to discussing readings, viewing video documentation and producing solo and group performances.
