FNDT 154 S001: Performance

This course explores liveness as it relates to bodies in performance practices that engage technologies. Projects and technical workshops are augmented by critical methods, with examples by contemporary artists that explore an understanding of performing bodies as sensorial and social. The course explores the sonic, visual, and tactile capabilities of performance. The course includes critical thought on the relationship of performing bodies to social and culture forms, such as gender, race, animality, collaboration, and audience. Various platforms for performance, such as public, staged, web, and virtual may be explored. The course asks students to produce a set of experimental performances in both individual and group settings. No previous experience with performance required.
