This unit enables students to undertake small exploratory performance-based projects through a laboratory-style experience. Students will explore various skills and strategies essential to realise identified projects collaboratively or individually for an invited audience. Students will critically reflect on their experience. In particular, this unit explores the development of devised ensemble performance through research and engagement with community and/or location. In this subject you will develop skills to draw out the themes and ideas in primary source material, and interpret source material via interpretive and original performance making.
