Due Oct. 4: Writing about Yanira Castro
We recently read about site- specific dance artists and their work. For this writing assignment describe what you see and are experiencing with a special eye to describing how the artist is engaging with the "site" and the audience in the performance experience. Remember the lexicon as a tool for finding juicy language - thick description can lead to rich interpretation and analysis!
Also, Yanira is especially interested in getting your feedback on your experience as a spectator. You can chose to weave that into this assignment, or write something separate.
Due Thursday before class.
Length: aim for around 2 pages double-spaced
