Meditations on Human Rights
This course is designed to offer students an opportunity to work intensively together to build a performance project inspired by the UN Declaration of Human Rights. Each student will research specific domestic or international human rights issues and develop that material into character studies and personal portraits. Daily physical, vocal, and creative process exercises will support the transformation of research into thirty artistic “moments” for presentation. Requirements will include a journal, research paper, final showing, and summation paper. No previous experience in the arts is required.
