ARHT6925 - Cinematographic Performance

Semester 1, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Laleen Jayamanne


Taking its cue from the etymology of the word Cinematography (writing with movement), this unit of study addresses the idea of performance. This includes the persona (mask) of the actor, but is not restricted to the organic human body. The vitality of 'non-organic' performance of cinematic elements and forces will receive equal attention. Conceptual tools for the analysis of a range of films will be drawn from an interdisciplinary field including theories of culture, fashion, gender, theatre, and neuroscience and philosophy.
