Performance Studies: Contemporary Practices

The class focuses on using the lens of "performance" to identify ways in which all aspects of human behavior and cultures are performances. Students explore the interstices of practice and theory in performance. Students develop an embodied and performative response to performance theory, and acquire the skills to apply theoretical vocabulary to actual performance.
