Perspectives in Dance as Culture: What the Body Knows--Social Change and Revolution

DANC 377
Fall 2017
Section: 01  
Crosslisting: ANTH 325, ENVS 377
Certificates: Environmental Studies
Course Cluster: Queer Studies

In this project-based class we will study the work of movement artists who directly address and engender social change. We will engage in methods of physical practice that focus on contemplation, transformation, physical re-orientation and social engagement. Requirements will include regular studio practice, and the development of a personal practice and personal manifesto. The final project will consist of a semester-long research project on a topic that can be characterized as a disruption or disaster. The research project will culminate in a persuasive position paper and a performative or otherwise organized social action (performance, site-specific work, installation, demonstration, or community action).
