This is a practical unit for Dance, Drama, Photography and Visual Arts. It engages students to consider key questions around site and audience. Students will propose, present and evaluate a creative work in their own discipline in response to a specific creative provocation. Aspects of researching and writing a professional proposal; planning and managing the delivery and documentation will be explored in depth. Final works will have a public outcome. Drama students will be introduced to a director-led approach and will work together and individually to build and develop key compositional skills in theatre-making, drawing from set texts and embodied methodologies to construct a live performance in response to a theme. Dance students will participate in a choreographic process that results in the creation of a dance for public performance, in response to a theme. This process will place the students in the role of dancers/performers, in which they respond to and realise a choreographic intention, as well as engaging in movement composition as co-creators of the dance. Photography students will explore the materiality of the image through sculptural forms of presentation and will focus on the nexus of still and moving image through expressions of cinematography, expanded photography and projection. Visual Arts students will investigate strategies of art making with a specific focus on the importance of site both within the gallery and within public space. Using the units two key provocations as the basis for making artwork that responds to contemporary themes, students will investigate the ways in which exhibition context and art making are connected.
