DANC 381
Spring 2011 not offered

This seminar/studio course provides theoretical support for an engagement between the body and technology, specifically in terms of arts practice. We will view the body as material and as a construction with changing meanings. By considering a collection of historical and contemporary writings on intersections between the body and technologies alongside examples of contemporary arts practices, we will build a platform for new scholarly and creative activity. To supplement reading, writing, and discussion, students will gain basic skills in Isadora© interactive software to investigate the course material in praxis. This course is applicable to choreographers, dance and art theorists, and scholars in other fields who are seeking to think about the body and technology in new ways.
