- Quarter: Spring 2021
This seminar will be devoted to the reading, theories, and writing of performance in experimental, critical, experience, historical, and imagination based modes. This course will focus on African American performance forms and guide students in writing and devising original writing for the stage based on required critical readings, memory, storytelling, and interactive performance exercises. We will examine a number of plays, performances, and essays as models and prompts. We will discuss theoretical essays on theatrical jazz and solo performance. We’ll write and critique passages and presentations of text, script, description, and poetry generated by participants during the quarter. There are no midterm or final exams, and grades are computed on work achieved in individual portfolios of your analyses, notes, and original performance texts and on group presentations and performances. You are expected to attend every seminar and make-up seminar, to participate in all activities, to complete the required readings and individual and group assignments– to write, to speak, and to move.
