Challenges and Actions: Projects of “Performance in Social Context”

Bilgi University Management of Performing Arts Students presents…

Our BA programme, Management of Performing Arts - Performing Arts Track offers field study and practice in performing arts in its broadest sense with a contemporary and cross-disciplinary approach to the arts. Its main aim is to encourage students to develop their own performative skills and to enhance their own creative capacities through the diversity of disciplines and critical processes, so as to lead them to build a trans-disciplinary approach. The curriculum includes theory, practice, project and production-based courses on performance in general. in this diversity of courses, “Performance in Social Context” is specially designed to focus around Performance in Public Space and Community Performance.  The students design their own project from concept to action, and then to documentation. The most challenging aspect of this course for students is to give priority to the participatory process rather than to author an artistic product.
