TPST 215 - Perf & Pandemic: Arts/COVID-19
In Performance and Pandemic:The Arts in the Age of COVID-19, we will engage with the artistic, economic, administrative/ managerial and spiritual impact of the COVID-19 crisis on the arts sector, with a particular emphasis on the impact of the crisis on live performance. The class will by definition be responsive to and engaging with the present-tense realities and practices in our world while it is unfolding. Among our activities, we will engage with artistic strategies and projects being created for a virtual landscape (online performances etc), and we will also engage with strategies being employed around the world for artists and arts organizations to respond to the crisis, to reimagine their work in a sustained climate of "physical distancing," to adapt, to survive, and to attempt to thrive. Through readings, viewings, creative projects, and conversations with artists and arts leaders regionally, nationally, and globally, we will also explore how and why artists matter in a time of crisis, as well as the long-term and permanent impacts of the pandemic on how we gather, and on the future of live performance.
