The Artist in the Community: Civic Engagement and Collaborative Dancemaking|
Fall 2022 not offered
DANC 376, THEA 376|
|Course Cluster and Certificates: Service Learning|
Through this practical course, students will grow their understanding of community-based performance and collaborative art-making. Grounded in readings and seminar discussion about the practice and process of community-based art-making at the start of the course, students will apply their learning by playing integral roles in the production of the Forklift Danceworks performance project with Physical Plant and other campus staff in October. Students will learn through job shadowing and interviewing campus employees, developing and rehearsing choreographic scenarios, and supporting performing employees as part of the production team. Through direct practice, students in the course will explore how collaborative performance can address local issues, spark community dialogue, and encourage civic participation--whether on a college campus, in a neighborhood, or across a city.
