This subject focuses upon the potential for interplay and dynamic dialogue between various disciplines and the building blocks of performance creation.
Practical/ studio based classes provide interaction with other discipline streams to develop communication and collaborative skills. Familiarisation with multi-disciplinary approaches is fostered with a focus on the exploration of generative processes used in composition and performance creation.
Laboratory classes allow students to collaborate and develop creative concepts together with the aim to experiment and familiarize with design methods and materials, and to discover possible solutions through the application of different approaches. Teams of professional practitioner/performance makers e.g. designers, directors, dramaturgs and choreographers are combined to promote creative exchange and discovery of methods in which multiple dramaturgies can interact effectively.
