Based on social and arts entrepreneurship knowledge as well as contemporary professional practice, this class establishes arts entrepreneurship as a unique discipline with the goal of connecting creative initiatives (products, artforms, and programs) to audiences, resources, and communities. With a focus on the artist entrepreneur, this course introduces students to the ways in which creative initiatives both create value andoffer solutions to social, political, environmental, and cultural issues. Students will develop artist impact statements and identify different contexts and ways to apply their talents and creative initiatives in society.
TDPS458F
Special Topics in Advanced Performing Arts; Aesthetics of Collaboration in Performance: Theory & Practice
Credits: 3
Grad Meth: Reg, P-F, Aud
This class offers practical methods for the creation and analysis of collaborative performance projects. Taking for granted that all performance works engage collaboration, this class is organized around themes of media, materiality, site-specificity, and working within and against systems. These themes are the organizing principles for student projects, as well as exemplary works of theory and performance. Finally, this class, being about collaboration, looks at strategies for working together, and carries with it an ethic of kindness, constructive critique, and mutual support.
