The course focuses on performing art in real time, using all available tools. Components such as age, gender, body, background and lived experience are studied as artistic subjects and content. Students investigate, through group- and independent work, how these factors are applied as content in works of art, as they appear in space, text and other outlets. Ideas about the relationship between the performer and the audience is disseminated.

  • Have enhanced their understanding of the relationship between art making and specialized field knowledge and technical skills with regards to performance,
  • Have an understanding of the influence different presentation forms have on the content of art works,
  • Be able to make use of varied media in the making of their work,
