Pioneering new-media and performance artist Kathy Rose will lead an interdisciplinary workshop that will allow students from all backgrounds to perform with media they have created. Students will bring in media of their choice, including audio, video, costume and objects, and learn how to incorporate them into live performance. The workshop will provide a behind-the-scenes view of what goes into creating performance art. The workshop will also include improvisations and exercises to promote confidence, concentration and imagination, and is intended for performers and non-performers alike.
Kathy Rose’s work has evolved from her early animated films of the 1970s through her unique, pioneering performance work combining dance with film in the 1980s and ’90s to her current surreal performance-video spectacles and installations. Rose has received numerous awards and has toured throughout the United States and Europe. She is also a master lecturer in media arts at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia.
