Open Eyes/Open Voices: Performative work in the Hirshhorn Museum
Open eyes allow visual art to inspire character narratives. Open voices bring those characters to life in performance. The Hirshhorn becomes a playground of the imagination for this interdisciplinary class. Start with a meet, greet and enjoy at the fountain, then adjourn to the museum basement to warm up with two interactive installations. In the Lerner Center, discover how physical responses to shape and color inspire free associations, and how those blossom into narratives. Then hunt for a piece on the museum’s third floor that arouses your passionate response, create an original performance piece, and reunite with the group for rehearsal and culminating performance.
Materials to Bring: Come dressed and prepared to walk and move. Bring a large sketch pad, magic markers, and a pencil with an eraser.
