Please note! Course description is confirmed for two academic years (1.8.2018-31.7.2020), which means that in general, e.g. Learning outcomes, assessment methods and key content stays unchanged. However, via course syllabus, it is possible to specify or change the course execution in each realization of the course, such as how the contact sessions are organized, assessment methods weighted or materials used.

LEARNING OUTCOMES

In understanding scenography as spatial scripting and choreography as embodied scripting, students plan, develop and realise a movement-oriented spatial performance as part of an artistic working group: integrating gesture, environment, garments, sound and light. Each of the students can isolate their task in relation to developing their particular area of competency towards a collaborative artistic resolution within the group and with other parallel groups. Content: Students produce a movement-oriented work with particular spatiotemporal elements and conditions as artistic group work, collaboratively managing the developmental, design and production process.
