Prereq: None 
Units: 4-0-5, HASS-A

Introduces students to an array of production techniques in areas of scenery, costume, rigging, lighting, video, and sound design. Provides multiple opportunities to apply these techniques ranging from theoretical discussions and scenographic sketches to the precision execution of design elements for a series of studio performance exercises. Concentrating on a disciplined approach to creative problem solving, small groups collaborate on short performances for a live audience in which the scenography plays the leading role. Reading assignments and screenings provide a historical and theoretical context for this studio-driven class. Limited to 18.
