Faculty: Caden Manson
Contemporary Practice focuses on Contemporary Performance artists and thinkers and looks at how we situate our practice in the field. During the first semester, students investigate current and emerging practices in Performing Care, Contemporary Choreography, Speculative Theater, Immersive Theatre, Co-Presence, Performance Cabaret, Post-Digital Strategies, Socially Engaged Art, and Mixed Reality Performance. During the second semester, students create individual artist statements, bios, resumes, and websites; develop pitches for new work; and learn how to engage with funders, artistic directors, and presenters.
Below are examples of the bios, websites, artists statements, resumes, and cvs the students developed during the component.
