Course: Devised Theater   

How is performance-making a mode of embodied research?  This is a studio-based class with a theoretical component, exploring performance-making as a methodology of humanistic research, and humanistic research as a catalyst for making socially-engaged performance. In this class, students will learn the histories, theories, and practices of devised theater making, or the process of collaboratively creating original, physical theater from scratch.  An emphasis will be placed on ensemble work, collaboration, and other non-hierarchal models at the core of devised theater praxis.
