This theatre course identifies the potential sources of artistic impulse and provides tools to develop artistic practice through making theatre with music as the primary element. From discovering the multiplicity of sources of inspiration, students will develop their own creative process from scratch to a final performance. Through unlocking the various ways music can be theatrical, we attempt song writing, composition of sonic landscape, utilizing found music to create theatre, and other possibilities. The course challenges the creator to continually return to the articulation of the investigation in various ways, learn strategies to dealing with roadblocks, and encourages innovation and experimentation with rigor and social conscience.
