This unit will make some comparison between digital processes and pre-digital performance making techniques with an emphasis on enabling students to recognize digital possibilities. Various practitioners such as Laurie Anderson, Robert LePage, Nalini Malani, the Wooster Group and Meredith Monk will be examined to introduce students to the range of ways contemporary performance artists are employing digital technology.
Students will be expected to undertake practical projects within the production schedule that employ digital technology and further to document those projects in a range of digital formats ie image, sound, text. Students will be made aware of the wide array of digital tools that are currently available and their potential application to performance making processes as well as the emergence of the virtual world as a possible live performance venue.
Digital Documentation of the work undertaken in the production schedule 20%, case study of a performance artist (1500 words) supplemented by further material, either audio or image, in a digital format 40%, practical project applying digital technology to specific outcomes within the production schedule 40%.
