|Program||FR–SRFreshmen–Senior||16||16||Day||F 15 Fall||W 16Winter||In this two quarter program, students will study the history, theory, and practice of 20th century Avant-garde performance, including Surrealist, Dada, Futurist, Cubist, Bauhaus, and other more recent contemporary Performance Art traditions. Emphasis is this program is on experiential learning through workshops stressing technique, theory, and composition and the live performance of original and reconstructed works.In the first quarter, students will study 20th century Western experimental performance art through the reading of texts, performance manifestos, and film screenings. In weekly workshops, students will investigate and practice newly-learned techniques and reconstruct historical performances. Students will also engage their learning through the use of improvisation and the composition of original performance works. There will be multiple rehearsals scheduled each week to reconstruct and create new work. Works in progress will be shared regularly in performance workshop for peer and faculty critique.In the second quarter, students will continue studies of Performance Art in order to create a body of short performances to be presented at the end of the quarter. Students will be heavily involved in both workshops and independent rehearsals in order to realize their final public presentation.This is an advanced program in practice and theory, designed particularly for theater and dance students, however, avant-garde performance works are multidimensional, and students in the performing arts, media arts, and visual arts with musical and kinesthetic sensitivity are welcome.Workshops are progressive and attendance is essential, requiring high levels of maturity, independent time management, and organization. Students need to be able to work collaboratively and should exhibit a high-level of independence. Most experiential learning cannot be "made up", and students are expected to be active and enthusiastic participants in all aspects of the program, at all meetings, and to demonstrate integrative, independent, and critical thinking.||Walter Grodzik||Mon Tue Wed Thu||Freshmen FR Sophomore SO Junior JR Senior SR||Fall||Fall Winter|

|Program||FR–SRFreshmen–Senior||16||16||Day||S 16Spring||This program will bring together students with a variety of talents and backgrounds—visual, design-based, technical, psychological, organizational—in ways that develop their skills and enrich their understanding of how to use them effectively in real-world situations. Issues of management, energy, sensory perception, ecology, and politics all weave together to make the fabric of work and workplaces, and we will attend to all these strands. The program will be genuinely all-level, and will share some activities with the graduate elective, Brave New Workplace. The topic calls on personal experience, societal patterns, and physical arrangements in ways that are rarely studied at any level. The concepts and methods will require good thinking but not extensive previous background. All students will find challenge; they will also find that their previous work experience and future work intentions are relevant raw material to our inquiry. Between studio time and required research and readings, students should expect to spend a full 40 hours per week on program work, in or out of class.||Robert Knapp Helena Meyer-Knapp||Freshmen FR Sophomore SO Junior JR Senior SR||Spring||Spring|
