Advisory Prerequisites:

Primary Instructor:

As part of LS&A’s Museums Theme Semester, this is a course in ‘creative devising’ making use of undergraduate talents in script-writing, music, movement and dance, acting and directing. Short performance pieces, of various kinds, focusing on major works in the collections of the UMMA and the Kelsey Museum of Archaeology will be devised for live presentation in the relevant gallery spaces at the end of the term. The pieces will follow these general guidelines but otherwise be left to the ingenuity of students in collaborative teams:

Length: 10 minutes max. (with the likelihood that most will be shorter).

Subject must be a major work artistically speaking, and of a suitable size.

Pieces must focus on the work itself — its artist, subject matter, milieu, genre, technique, etc. — and not simply be the expression of personal, subjective impressions of the work. In other words, the performance pieces will all have a ‘documentary’ component and thus require significant research.

The instructor will guide this research, help shape the works themselves, and co-ordinate resources toward the final multiple and staggered performances in both the museum spaces in April.
