Each day we create compelling environments for performance with the hanging screens and scrims, projectors, sound system and theatrical lighting readily available in the space. We investigate the compositional methods that make post-medium artworks of this kind work and address perennial issues of attention, perception of live vs. mediated elements, integration of multiple modes of expression, and conceptual/historical/theoretical concerns. Throughout the course and in self-designed final projects, students conduct choreographic, improvisational, and creative experiments combining the moving body and the moving image to convey new ideas, illuminate old ones, and expand the horizons of the performing arts Prereq: Enrollment in Dance major, and Jr standing, or permission of instructor.
