Devising Collaborative Performance Minor


Return to {$returnto_text} Return to: Majors and Programs

Devising Collaborative Performance is a method of performance generation that engages in collaborative creation and often uses improvisational work by the performing ensemble. For theatre majors, this program will build upon the interest in devising that is developed in the first-year Theatre Foundation classes. For others, regardless of major, the minor serves as a place to build on their particular artistic and creative expertise in exploration of collaborative performance-making and multi-disciplinary performance experiences. Students will take classes in theatre and dance and other departments that build on skills of writing, improvisation, adaptation, documentary performance, and movement.

As a result of successfully completing program requirements, students should be able to:

  • demonstrate proficiency in multi-disciplinary communication and performance making;
  • exhibit knowledge about multiple devising processes including text-based, movement-based and documentarian;
  • demonstrate the application of a variety of performance styles and forms toward the creation of original performance; and
  • communicate understanding of devising practices across cultures and countries.
