Faculty members Debra Marquart (creative writing, English), Jane Cox (theater), Gregory Oaks (music) and Theresa Paschke (integrated studio arts) will dissect performance as a process from conception to its entrance into the public sphere.

Performance in its multi-variegated manifestation is a highly creative, public act. It can have a resonance for a small or very large audience, be politicized or somewhat neutral, and carry multi-dimensional connotations. Bringing together specialists from poetry, theatre, music, and the visual arts, this panel hopes to dissect performance as a process from its conception to its entrance into the public sphere.

Artistic endeavors these days can make very broad & important public statements, as well as be highly individualized and personal. This panel seeks to dissect this process, its resonance in public, and its complexities in today's highly visual, hyper-informational world.
