A Senior Project in Theater Studies for Jill Carrera and Lizzy Emanuel.Culmination of THST 308: Performing Design, Spring 2017 Taught by Nathan Roberts and Deb MargolinA Senior Project in Theater Studies for Jill Carrera and Lizzy Emanuel.Tickets here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/performing-design-tickets-33811847145A public performance where the “backstage” finds its place on stage center.An ensemble of students in the exploration of theatrical design and production in a devised setting. Engaging with ensemble techniques revolutionized by the great experimental troupes of the last century, apply collaborative strategies to the generation of design and production elements. AND, do so in a setting where design, production, and management are not “service disciplines,” but have an equal place at the table with acting and text.Explore design as a story-telling mode as flexible and adaptive as the actor’s voice. Perhaps you have a “default” modality for your theatre-making: scenic charge, actor, lighting designer, playwright, stage manager, dramaturge… In Performing Design, you will unpack any assumptions about production roles and processes, and deepen your appreciation of the rich array of elements that shape a theatrical experience.An openness to cross-disciplinary influence. All perform. All design.
