Students from the fall course THR 451/MTD 451: Theater Rehearsal and Performance utilize an investigative performance-driven process to joyously uplift lives that have ended, using theater, song and dance. Led by visiting theater director Sam Pinkleton and working with other professional collaborators, students will create theatrical work in large groups, small groups and alone. During an ongoing global pandemic, this living archive of the dead will offer up space for proposals, reflections, indictments, celebrations and imagined alternatives to a world numbed by an ambush of death. The class will culminate in student micro-projects that can be freely viewed in any order, at any time, from anywhere.
