Move2Change: Perform Activism

Move2Change: Social Activism and Performance
In this course we will examine the intersection between social activism and performance. This entry-level course will cover a brief history of performance art and the dynamic power of activism but will focus primarily on the collaborative creation of performance infused with a social conscience. Content will be drawn from fields ranging from political science to women and gender studies to civil rights. Looking at art making through the eyes of pivotal historical figures in addition to contemporary artists, we will gather techniques to develop solo and group performances. Readings, films, journal writing, and studio research will be an integral part of this highly experiential class. This course counts as elective credit towards the Dance major.
