Fall 2013 Course Offerings
ATL 496/CWR 496
This class will be an exploration of the transformation of existing texts into performance. Students will work with their own creative writing, musical composition, scene work, and character development, as well as assigned pieces of literature in order to develop scenes, songs and monologues. Simultaneously, Wolitzer and Roche will be exploring with the class scene and song work from Wolitzer's in-progress Young Adult novel, Belzhar, which itself owes a debt to a pre-existing work, Sylvia Plath's The Bell Jar.
Led by Artistic Director and Founder John Collins and ensemble members of Elevator Repair Service Theater, this course will offer students the opportunity to learn about how the 22-year-old NYC-based ensemble works, and to develop material with the ensemble culminating in a performance directed by John Collins. The course will look at the ensemble's work with choreography, sound design, space and text. Students will then generate material and create a performance using all of the above elements and the Complete Tales and Poems of Edgar Allen Poe as text.
