4.S33 | Setting a Performative Frame and Intersecting Fact and Fiction

Instructor: Rosa Barba

TA: Neil Sanzgiri

In this class, the instructor proposes a journey from cinema to another kind of film through an objectification of a filmic ontology, into a hyper-space whose nature and limits remain to be defined. How do we create a performative setting where fact and fiction can be intertwined? The class will interrogate the industry of cinema with respect to various forms of staging, such as gesture, genre, information, and documents, taking them out of the context in which they are normally seen and reshaping and representing them anew. Student work will culminate in film and performance interventions in Cambridge.
