Description

DEADLINE FOR REGISTRATION: APRIL 25

This one-day workshop examines historical and contemporary performance art practices and theory within the context of its traditions and as a discipline where boundaries are fluid enough to explore performance art through the use of diverse media with non-specific temporal and spatial boundaries. In these two, day long sessions students will learn and use performance art methods, practices and conceptual ideas.

This workshop considers the theoretical and functional discourse of performance art and its relationship to a rande of other media including new-media, installation, sculpture, choreography, design, music, theater and architecture. Throughout the course students will explore aesthetic, historical, cultural and theoretical issues in relation to performance art as a medium, method and practice through lectures, four projects and critiques.
