About the program

Students will be given tools to observe, appreciate and critically reflect on various theoretical and embodied notions from different artistic perspectives. These will include the language of the body, relationships to space and to audience, dramaturgy in dance, dance versus non-dance aesthetics, theatricality, performativity and sociopolitical contexts. Students will be expected to attend the seven obligatory performances (6 paying, 1 free) that will form the basis for discussion and analysis. The course may also include guest speakers, artist exchanges, films and public lectures. Lectures will be given in English and provision will be made for translation from French to English during festival events, if required. Classes will take place to the extent possible at the Quartier Général of the Festival TransAmériques, otherwise at the Dance Dept. Studio MB 7.255.
