Making Queer Performance Art: An Interdisciplinary ApproachWhat is queerness? What is performance art? What is queer performance art and how is it made? This multi-layered course attempts to both identify and challenge the prevailing answers to these questions while also providing students with tools to create their own queer performance artworks. Part seminar and part creative process, the course places equal emphasis on theory and creativity.
