FINA 616P Studio Topics: Object Performance

3 credits undefined hours
600 level graduate course

This course brings together principles of design, visualization, and movement with the intention of creating a more heightened awareness of our interactions with objects and with the built environment. Movement exercises will generate methodologies for making; for example, how might improvisational interaction with other performers be applied to improvisation and spontaneity in the creation of free-form drawings and paintings? Could the exploration of geometry and repetition in our movements in turn be applied to building sculptures? A special emphasis is placed upon the study of patterns, the interaction of colors, contrast between foreground and background (or backdrop), the relationship between the flat and the dimensional, and the way in which form is, ultimately, an expression and extension of body and mind.

Open only to Devised Performance majors.
This course may be completed 2 times for credit.
Pass/fail grading only.
