This class combines the targeted playreading skills of a designer with deep dives into visual research. How to gain a foundation of historical research for a specific theatrical work? How to interpret this research through an added lens of specific artistic movement or style? In this class, we will develop skills to source, curate, and present images that both deepen our understanding of a text as designers and visual thinkers, as well as free our imaginations to the aesthetic possibilities of the text. Bi-weekly research projects paired with historically-based dramatic literature provide the main structure of the work. Class time is a combination of discussions of theatrical texts, paired with student project presentations and critiques.
Grading: yes pass/fail option,
yes fifth course option
Coursework is dramatic literature comprehension and group discussion/critique, combined with biweekly research projects.
