This semester length course will be focused on the intersection of performance with digital media. We will consider the relationship between the physical body and the digital body; how performers can use technology to expand the body; and how digital artists can use performance to bring their work to a live audience. We will adapt performance into digital formats and incorporate digital media into live performance through a combination of group and individual exercises. Each class will be divided between discussion, physical exercises, and digital lab sessions. By the end of the course students will produce an individual performance video, a collaborative installation based project, and a live performance incorporating digital media.
