This seminar is designed for first and second semester Division III students whose projects involve some aspect of theatre. Participants are expected to read some key performance texts and discuss them in relation to their own work, and to help select readings relevant to their own area of focus. We will also attend performances and participate in workshops led by theatre practitioners. Considerable time throughout the semester will be devoted to students' presentation of works in progress, peer editing, and sharing strategies for completing large independent projects. Assignments will include completing critical narrative essays, creating an annotated bibliography and an artist statement that could be incorporated into the Division III project. This seminar can be used as an advanced learning activity.
