The goal of this experimental workshop course is to stimulate creativity, promote collaboration, practice alternative models of theatre-making, and generate new work as an ensemble. Participants will work in teams across traditional theatre disciplines in conceiving, researching, scripting, designing, staging, and performing original material. The workshop is intended for advanced theatre majors who want to create theatre from scratch and are prepared to make a significant time commitment to working with their peers to do that. Students in CPW must also enroll in the corequisitite one-credit course: Composition and Performance Workshop Lab (CT 449). More information is available from Scott T. Cummings.
