Experimental Theater & Performance Art Workshop
12:00 - 4:00pm
In this four-hour workshop, participants will get a brief history of performance art, conceptual art, experimental theater, and immersive theater. We will collaborate on exercises for generating ideas and devising theatrical pieces. Then we will divide into groups to create more elaborate pieces, workshop them, and finally present them for the whole group. This class is taught by Grayson Morris.
