DANCE 114: Movement for Actors/Acting for Dancers: Techniques for the Contemporary Performer

Designed for the performing artist in the contemporary theatrical environment, this class will expose students to various training modalities from contemporary dance, popular dance styles, physical theater, musical theater, Greek theater and other somatic techniques. Students will undertake various practices such as, but not limited to: Viewpoints, Laban, Gaga, Butoh and Grotowski in a workshop format. Other activities include creating studies from widely sourced prompts as given by the instructor and developing a personal performance preparation playbook. The course will include special guests from the TAPS faculty in Dance, Theater and Performance. In an age where the triple threat performer is in high demand, and movement, text, narrative, production and space are not necessarily treated hierarchically, the well-rounded performer will be better equipped to handle current multi-genre stages. While all levels are welcomed, the committed dance and/or theater student is especially encouraged to apply. Questions? Contact: Aleta Hayes (ahayes1@stanford.edu)

FEMGEN 98: Queer Music

This course explores the cultural and historical overlap of two marginal categories¿the queer, the musical¿with a focus on what these critical concepts can teach us much about identity, identification, and belonging. We will discuss genres including classical, musical theater, rap, pop, country, and punk as well as queer socialities formed in and through these musical scenes. We will think critically about the subtleties of musical language and queer affect, the circulation of gay rumors, and the diva as an object of queer obsession while asking how race, gender, and class as well as elitism, status, and taste inform such inquiries.

FILMSTUD 137: Love in the Time of Cinema (FILMSTUD 337, GLOBAL 110, GLOBAL 211)

Romantic coupling is at the heart of mainstream film narratives around the world. Through a range of film cultures, we will examine cinematic intimacies and our own mediated understandings of love and conjugality formed in dialog with film and other media. We will consider genres, infrastructures, social activities (for example, the drive-in theater, the movie date, the Bollywood wedding musical, 90s queer cinema), and examine film romance in relation to queerness, migration, old age, disability, and body politics more broadly.
