The UC Davis Department of Theatre and Dance’s ITDP offers opportunities for undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and staff from across the campus community to further research through practical exploration and application. The goal is to expand understanding of creative power, of different kinds of knowledge, especially the embodied, and of communication that offers insight into different cultures and peoples. ITDP encourages cutting edge research and production across fields of practice and in dialogue with the diverse community of Davis and beyond.
This two-day workshop will explore the implications of digital documentation for the area of arts, humanities, and cultural heritage. As Michael Brown writes, the ‘information society’ ‘has proven adept at stripping information from the cultural contexts that give it meaning’ (2005). Digitization seems inevitable for the preservation and circulation of arts and heritage, but how might we shape that process to acknowledge local contexts of obligation and reciprocation?
The Department of Theatre and Dance presents “Bacholerette” by Leslye Headland as an Institute for Exploration of Theatre, Dance and Performance (ITDP) production. The comedy, which explores the darker side of female friendships, is directed by undergraduate student Sarah Assaad.
The work will be performed March 8 at 7 p.m. and March 9 at 2 and 7 p.m. in the Lab A Theatre in Wright Hall.
