Solo Performance: Telling My Story (DRA4322.01)

Kirk Jackson

Students develop original and/or primary source material and explore its shape, arc, and thematic whole in a performance medium that can involve text, movement, characterization, personal examination, and observation. Generating and receiving constructive feedback, with sensitivity to process, is an essential aspect of the work. Students write, edit, rewrite multiple drafts and perform original memorized material. Class work will be tailored around the specific challenges facing individual participants and will culminate in a public showing of an original solo performance piece approximately ten minutes in length.

Prerequisites: Permission of the instructor upon receipt of a writing sample and brief description of project goal submitted no later than Nov 14. (VAPA faculty box or email to kjackson2@bennington.edu)
