PRFM3962 - Inside Rehearsal

Semester 2, 2013  |  Credit Points: 6

Coordinator: Paul Gregory Dwyer


Over five days, students attend the rehearsals of a company of professional artists-in-residence at the department's Rex Cramphorn Studio, observing and documenting the skills and intuition that go into crafting those magic moments an audience will later encounter in performance. In the seminars following these observations, students will explore ways of interpreting their experience, deepening the principles of ethnographic research learned in PRFM3961, and developing a casebook which analyses aspects of the "culture" underpinning the creative work of rehearsals.


1x500wd formative assessment and writing plan for casebook (20%), 1x4000wd casebook (80%)
