Description

This course introduces areas that are fundamental to the Creative and Performing Arts, including Theatre, Performance, Drama, Visual Arts and Sound across a variety of contemporary cultural contexts. The course synthesises key ideas already developed in CAPA1001 and CAPA2001.

It explores the creative role and value of new and existing technologies, aesthetic judgment of creative works that use technological mediation and associated methodological approaches. Using various technological resources such as hand held devices or dedicated software applications, students will engage collaboratively in practical workshops and processes of group reflection, analysis, and aesthetic judgment towards the production of events, performances, artworks and websites.
