Design and the Performative Space
THEA 359
Spring 2012 not offered

In this course, we will explore, construct, and deconstruct the performative space, whether theatrical, site-specific, or virtual. We will analyze the space as a context to be activated by the body of the performer and witnessed by an audience. Through theoretical and practical assignments, we will study the aesthetical history of the theatrical event, while developing your own creative design process. You will be guided through each step of this process: concept development, visual research, renderings or drawings, model making, and drafting.

Essential Capabilities: Designing, Creating, and Realizing, Interpretation
Students will conceptualize and design based on a text, for which they will interpret and realize creative projects.
