A production course geared to performers, choreographers, and other artists interested in producing site-specific work. Through three assignments, students will have the opportunity to plan and conceptualize a site-specific work.
About the course:
This course focuses on the creation of live site-specific choreography and performance works from conception to production to performance. Site-specific dance/performance is work created in response to a particular place or site, inspired by its architecture or design, its history, and/or its current use. Lectures and forum discussions will investigate site-based projects in both urban and non-urban locales, and ranging from large-scale to small (guerrilla) style productions. Furthermore, together we will delineate definitions of site-specificity, and look across the history of the field, focusing primarily on dance.
