Repertory and Performance: Storied Places|
Fall 2016 not offered
|This course may be repeated for credit.|
Grounded in the experiences of the multiple African American migrations of the late-19th and early-20th centuries, this course will explore the ideas of migration, displacement, home, and place writ large. As a community, we will collaboratively develop a performance that will utilize movement, text, and objects as research tools and creative processes as our methodology to engage these themes.
Our process in creating this work will include improvisation, development of set materials, readings, discussion, and writing.
Students will have the opportunity to work along side professional dancers as well as Wesleyan faculty and their peers in preparation for an interdisciplinary performance in the spring.
