The NOW course introduces notions of untimely timeliness and constructions of now through the immediacy of language, moves, props, lighting and the speed of transmitting what you perceive.

Over the 8 sessions different artistic methods and techniques to construct now and deconstruct it are explored producing other states of nowness and being in-time. The course aspires to a collaborative model of working together, with artistic expressions to be discussed and experimented through Reflection in Action (Schon), short lectures, theme finding, visual recording and producing on-the-spot performative exercises.

Visual Recording
Record: information, ideas, experimental, exploratory, investigative methods, materials, equipment,
technology, processes
Mark-making: eg visual qualities, materials, tools, surfaces; 2D drawing.

Course requirements: All students are encouraged to perform.

Learning outcomes:
-transmit ideas spontaneously, responding to performance practices through drawing in an improvised performance setting.
-basic concepts of light design for performance art practice.
