INTP 091. Capstone: ” Defying Categorization: Contemporary Dance and Sign Language Performance”
LING 091, DANC 23A
Spring 2021: INT 091: ” Defying Categorization: Contemporary Dance and Sign Language Performance” will be cross-listed with Linguistics 091 and Dance 23A
This course interrogates issues surrounding late twentieth and twenty-first-century movement-based performance focusing on dance, storytelling, and sign poetry including cultural hybridity and the relationship between movement and text. Jumping off from the history of aesthetics and methodologies developed by performance studies and dance studies, as well as sociological distinctions of in-group/out-group, we will ask what gets performed, where, and why.
Spring 2022: INTP 091 “Interpreting Narrative through Creation with Clay and Language” will be cross-listed with Linguistics 091 and Studio Arts
This is a course using creative arts to bring into focus questions about the fundamental nature of narrative, about the analogies between different types of creative arts, and even about what a creative art is. Students will create narratives and realize them through the media of clay and language. Students will learn the basics of constructing with clay to create representations in shape and form in relation to their own linguistic narrations.
Open to INTP seniors and juniors, and other juniors and seniors by approval of instructors.
