PASC 105: Perform as Social Change I-Lec
Performance as Social Change is a course designed to expose underrepresented students and those that have unequal access and opportunity to performance-based knowledge, skills, critical pedagogies, and mentoring. The course will produce an experimental performance. Centering embodiment, the goal of this authentic task will be to increase awareness and enhancement of multicultural competency for audiences and community members through the communicative powers of the performing arts. Throughout the course, students will be required to engage in academic study, research, movement and reflective practices. Central to this work will be a focus on the critical factors that can help facilitate social change through the voices of underrepresented and marginalized groups in our society.
