First-Year students make Solo Performances at home

May 8, 2020

For their culminating Solo Performance projects in the first-year THAR 160 Humanities Learning Community “Performance, the Artistic Process, and You,” Psychology major Lillian Jue went for her sewing machine, while fellow Psych major Jasmynn Collier-Lozano went for her photo album.  This year-long General Education course, taught by Profs. Doyle Ott and Scott Horstein, asks first-year students, many from outside the Department of Theatre Arts & Dance, to think deeply about the nature of the performative act; the role of performance in their lives; and about concepts such as suggestion, ritual, and sacred space.  From their homes in San Francisco and Santa Cruz, Jue and Collier-Lozano created these brief and unusual filmed performances, a fierce call to action in one case, and a reaching out for connection in the other.
