Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

"There's a blaze of light in every word | It doesn't matter which you heard | The holy or the broken." (L. Cohen)
This course focusses on the performed (i.e., embodied, enacted) text. Touch, sound, sight, story, warmth, rhythm, movement, security, authority, enthusiasm, love, resonance; they are all brought together in the shared experience of a staged text. So, this is learning in action ... We will research, plan, design, rehearse and deliver presentations on a bunch of topics, sequencing selected content and multimodal elements for accuracy and their impact on the audience.
As we often work in highly asymmetric communicative settings, we will not only determine the purpose of a given assignment but also reflect upon the concept of PURPOSE in general: Whose purpose, really? To whose benefit?
In this course, you will experience a collaborative and supportive environment. We will embrace our accents (i.e., part of what we are)–nothing to get rid of–and broaden our repertoire.–––Do we dare bring all our own Englishes into the classroom, into our TEATRO?
Learning objectives:
(i) to broaden performance repertoire;
(ii) to hone performance skills with a focus on the communication situation and text organization.
Live performances and peer-reviewed out-of-class recordings.
Individual, pair and group work.
So, let’s hit the ground running …
