This course examines how the time-and site-specific experience of performance art is translated into physical material with sustainability. It investigates into the relation of physical remains to ephemeral artistic practice, their meaning for the inscription into history, and ways of use for artists, scholars, and curators. The course presents various theories related to the concept of the archive, modes of documentation ranging from traditional to contemporary, as well as examples of use of archival material in artistic and exhibition practice. Students will consider how documenting strategies are changing in relation to new technologies and media and what the implications are for the concept of the “archive”.
The main objective of this course is to prepare the participants to develop an idea into a live performance art piece. In the process, participants will practice how to think critically about performance art and find their unique way of expression. In order to gain historical and disciplinary perspective, participants will learn about precedents such as Futurism and DADA, the development of the scene in various parts of the world, leading artists such as Yoko Ono, Marina Abramovic, or Vito Acconci, as well as crucial festivals and exhibitions.
The Master of Fine Arts in Theatre at Sarah Lawrence College supports students through research and practice to develop their unique artistic voice and robust creative practice to engage with the contemporary field. Under the guidance of faculty and thesis advisors who are working artists, curators, and organizers, the program offers an advanced study of theatre and performance that is interdisciplinary, collaborative, expansive, and rigorous.
Sarah Lawrence College Theatre Program is a community of generous and engaged artists who value diverse, intentional, and rigorous research, process, and creation. We hold each other and ourselves accountable to responsibly challenge ourselves and each other to foster our growth as individuals and collaborative artists. We support innovation, not only in the art we produce but also in the systems we make to learn, share, and create. Through an interdisciplinary curriculum that prioritizes equality, care, and experimentation, we aim to create an artistic environment steeped in joy to envision and build a better future. This is an open and inclusive community where everyone is welcome.
