Performance Skills for Performing Artists
Compare offerings and share your lists with others.
This program is for performers (musical, theater, or other movement artists) who want to concentrate on their abilities as performers and aims to help them best realize their potentials by creating works that are clear and engaging. We will investigate the psychological, physical, and compositional components of performance by focusing on aspects such as: awareness of the body, shape and space, attention to sound and time, and through asking essential questions like “What does this piecewant?” Students will bring their own works in progress to workshops, where we will collectively analyze and refine their execution. We will regularly take the works of each student, and perform, deconstruct, make suggestions, try out alternatives, and other such activities. Students should come with a willingness to explore possibilities and try out ideas. In addition to workshops, there will be reading assignments for discussion, and we will study recorded performances of artists in music or theater. This program is not merely a rehearsal intensive but a broadening of the skill set which will bolster the students’ ability to communicate ideas through performance—and to have fun doing it too.
