Creating Original Performances

Description of Course:

This course is recommended for both advanced artists (in any medium) and also for total beginners who wish to dare trying something new. Students will develop original live performances, readings, or video, audio, or animation pieces.
We will practice techniques and exercises that can inspire the creation and performance of new works.

Participants may choose to develop work in any genre (drama or comedy, screenplay, fiction, nonfiction, poetry, biography, autobiography, song, adaptation, translation). Each project will develop its own form of performance (theater, video, multi-media, reading, performance art, installation, audio, music, dance, puppetry, visual art).

Participants may decide to perform their own work or to collaborate with other performers.
Participants may develop solos or ensemble works.

This course is taught by an artist whose theater and multi-media work have received international recognition.

Required Texts:

No textbooks are required.
Readings may be suggested for individual projects.

Course Requirements/Evaluation Criteria:

Ongoing presentation of work-in-progress, participation in class discussions and critiques, final project, attendance. No previous performing experience is required.
