Performance & Technology

This course, taught at DUKE since 2011, offers a workshop exploration of technologies embedded in performance: robots, media, computer interface. Students create performance projects and discuss theoretical and historical implications of technologies in performance. Hands-on making and engineering workshops to develop basic skills in technological crafts such as circuit design and fabrication toward technologically enhanced performance. No previous experience or programming skills required. Each iteration of the course includes a public demonstration of small robot projects, as well as a theatrical performance on stage related to some of the materials from the course.
