UACC 237 Collaborative Studio: Performance with Wearable Art

1.5 - 3 credits undefined hours
200 level undergraduate course

This Collaborative Studio course engages students from all University disciplines by showing how their making, writing and performing practices can be applied to larger collaborative projects. Exploring Wearables in Performance includes exercises and assignments that call upon the individual students’ strengths stimulating cross-disciplinary experimentation resulting in exciting collaborations. The course addresses the tradition of costume in performance, storytelling and its relationship to character analysis and conceptualization. Students will focus on the importance of sound and music in performance and the materiality of making objects that transform the body. They will be asked to consider how the wearable generates performance or how the storytelling informs the wearable. Their exercises will show the impact wearables have on the performance, and how the use of costume creates new personas.

Collaborative Studio engages students in cross-disciplinary and collaborative processes, building links and connections across the disciplines through diverse cultural experiences, critical writing and discussion.
