Mapping the Transgressive Body: A Performance Lab

Jaamil Olawale Kosoko

Centering an interdisciplinary approach to live performance making, this creative lab will consider how we as artist-citizens strengthen the mind and body to resist normalized structures of performance to release, activate, and translate unknown, foreign, and/or vulnerable materials into live performance actions. Students will conduct research, view and critique live performance (on and off campus) attend exhibitions, and create cosmologies of their creative influencers. Open to all students interested in exploring their previously uncharted performative potential.
