This subject focuses upon the potential for interplay and dynamic dialogue between the building blocks of performance creation. Seminars and practical/studio-based classes provide interaction with other discipline streams to develop communication and collaborative abilities within the processes of artistic composition and a familiarity with the approaches of other disciplines.
There is a focus upon design and an exploration of the generative processes used in performance creation (composition for performance, generative writing, cross modal improvisation). Laboratory classes allow students to explore and develop design concepts together, to experiment, and become familiar with design methods, materials and possible solutions. Seminars focus upon creative teams of professional practitioners e.g. designers, directors, choreographers, performance makers who discuss ways in which collaboration can occur in the development of design/production concept and realisation.
