Scenographers use drawing as an expressive and communication tool in rehearsal and in performance. They use it as a record of a thought process and an instrument for reflection. Drawing allows discussion and error and serves as a register of the creative process for all involved.
This conference aims at reflecting upon the artistic and pragmatic relationship scenographers, directors and choreographers have with drawing as a device for the creation of space and time of performance and as mediator between the bodies of performers on stage and the drawer’s page.
Theme: The Art of Writing/The Writing of Art
The 2019 SUNY Conference on Writing will take place at Purchase College from November 8-9.
Based on the principle that arts and scholarship are indispensable to each other and to society, Purchase College, SUNY, was envisioned from its founding as a campus where conservatory training in the visual and performing arts would reside alongside programs in the liberal arts and sciences. In this spirit, and in honor of Purchase College’s unusually artistic student body, we invite attendees and presenters to consider the relationship between writing and art.
North East Modern Language Association's 51st Annual Convention, March 5-8, 2020
Faculty learning communities offer an environment in which normally isolated spaces, places, and disciplinary-specific language and cultures can interact to produce new insights into members’ professional identity and pedagogy while simultaneously enriching a college’s broader community of ideas.
