Anthony Romero and J. Soto

PERF 605 001
3 credit hours 

This class explores the theme of performing cultural legacies with regards to fashion and entertainment of the 1990’s. The era of the supermodel, robust multiculturalism, a decade edging towards a millennial landmark and further from the horrors of the AIDS crisis. Tracing different paths of identification and layers of history, students will create performances with these ideas in mind. This course will take the form of a studio-laboratory, where students will consider movement, duration, and experiment with the performing object, fashioned precisely to suit the work.
