Devised Theater Workshop

Course Number
CMAT-522
Description

This course explores the practices of devising theater experiences by connecting to broader social and cultural topics. Students will achieve competence in generating an ethos through original performance work. Participants will enhance their physical, emotional, imaginative, and cognitive playfulness in order to be well-equipped for the journey of articulating, shaping, and presenting their artistic visions. This course focuses on a contemporary approach to different theatrical landscapes and performance styles. The aim is to increase their physical, poetical, and intellectual understanding of the underlying structures within very different theatrical practices. This exploration will allow participants to develop a better insight into what kind of theater and performance they are passionate about in order to create their own work while breaking the boundaries of existing forms.
