In a studio setting, site specific locations, or online platforms, students will be led through performance creation methods using a number of discipline-specific practices (installation art, digital moving image, scenographic devising, sound as performance) and transdisciplinary approaches (learning to think across disciplines as well as in a non-discipline specific manner). Students will work in groups using a variety of materials and media (concrete materials, digital media, and analog and digital sound and light technologies). An emphasis will be put on improvisatory creation methods in which performances ‘emerge’ out of process rather than through excessive pre-planning. Note: BPAC 400 is intended to provide a theoretical and historical foundation for this course. Technical skills learned in BPAC 402 are intended to be directly applied to this course.
