In the first month of the advanced ETB course Digital Storytelling & Resistance, students created performances for video – to understand the unique possibilities, limitations and distinctive qualities that performing for the camera have that set it apart from other types of performance art. The assignment was designed to help students gain confidence in performing, establish a vocabulary of movement, and instill an awareness of how their movements and gestures translate on camera.
Performance Art (In The Expanded Field) is a course through which students will learn about the interdisciplinary history of performance art from early conceptual art to contemporary digitally mediated approaches. In conjunction with establishing an understanding of the genre’s history, students will create their own experimental performance art pieces which may include performances-for-video, performances-for-stage, performances-in-public, digitally mediated performances and more. Through assigned performance gestures and supporting texts and screenings, students will develop the confidence to make performances in a variety of contexts as well as the vocabulary to talk about them.
