Synopsis

This course seeks to engage students in the application of theory to research and practice through demonstration and analysis of the body as a vehicle for complex and transmutable expression. The body is very often the locus of meaning for performative texts. The social, cultural and political framing of the how the body might be read, embodied, queered, transformed, and imposed upon will be explored in this course in order to engage students with their own creative performance practice. An awareness of the body as a key indicator of performance (and performance as indicator of the body rendered visible) is central to all discussions in this course.
