Surveys performance in relation to media and to spatial structures imagined as settings for narrative movements, and uses video to explore the perception of sounds and images and how they are altered by various devices. Students design visual forms and performative actions, and make props or objects that embody aspects of their narratives. Activities include readings and screenings on the theoretical and historical background of performance art. Assignments lead to a final performance project.

Additional work required of students taking graduate version.
