About the Course

The course is focused on providing the students the opportunity to explore new ways of documenting (and archiving) body-based performance practices. By considering the documentation as an artistic strategy and essential part of a performance practice, this course aims to:

  • examine different forms of documenting a performance work and practice (e.g. video, photo, text)
  • explore the notion of ‘expanded documentation’ by using narrative means that reframe the documentation in a new context
  • promote collaborative processes to generate joint documentations
  • analyze the value of documentation in the academic context and performing arts festival market
