Render Edit: The Paper My Committee Advises
Oppenheim, Sarah Beth
MetadataShow full item record
Dear Reader, you are invited to experience the creative process, execution, pedagogy, failures, and visceral response of Render Edit – a semester-long project that culminated in an evening-length dance theatre event of three simultaneous performances in one space with subdivided stages and audiences. Render Edit asked audiences to engage with a scaffolding that concealed and revealed emotional arcs and structural narrative via movement, sound, and prop. This document is meant to provide you something sustainable, concrete, and explanatory to the dance’s ephemeral experience. Both dance and document are a womanifesto of challenge and agency. Both are meant to be duplicitous, triangulated, and experienced from multiple points of view. Both were completed in partial fulfillment and challenge of the Master of Fine Arts degree from the University of Maryland’s School of Theatre, Dance, and Performance Studies.
