Performing Design

A Senior Project in Theater Studies for Jill Carrera and Lizzy Emanuel.

Culmination of THST 308: Performing Design, Spring 2017
Nathan Roberts and Deb Margolin

A 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. Generative exercises will lead to weekly design-performance pieces in response to textual, imagistic, and aural prompts.

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.
