This subject focuses the student on the task of writing from/after performance. Like all art, live performance is constituted in part by some elements and enigmas that are not easily expressed by means of language. The subject familiarises the student/artist with established conventions and traditions pertinent to writing from/after performance, including the review, the critical review and analysis, exegesis, dissertation, thesis and reflection, while also challenging and stretching those conventions to express and represent new and evolving forms of performance and writing. New forms of ‘after-writing’ might respond to notions of trace, transience, re-assemblage, poetic response, metaphor and meditation. Writing exercises in this subject will respond to the performance work of others (both inside the VCA as well as professional work including work presented at the Melbourne International Festival).
