THE 205 Devised & Ensemble Theatre

3 Credit(s)
This course is designed for BFA Theatre Arts Performance, Directing, and Playwriting concentration students and will serve as a performance lab in the spring of the second year of study.  In this course students will collaborate on creating an original, full-length theater piece using a variety of devising and improvisational techniques. Students will work as an ensemble or group to devise this performance employing all the elements of theater including simple lighting, set, sound, costume, etc. around a chosen theme. The course will introduce the basic history and context for devised and ensemble based theater as well as offer methods for employing this theory into the practice of composing theater in a studio setting and will culminate in a public performance for an audience.
