Theatre Games for Game Designers delves into physical space and improvisational games. Using human bodies in space rather than pixels, this course is designed to give students a bit of history of theatre and performance art and the experience of playing theatre games and making performance. I hope to trip students into using their senses of intuition and imagination in order to bring emotion and storytelling to their game designs. Classes start with a brief physical warm up and proceed into theatre games, discussion of readings, and student presentations. Students will use intellectual, physical and intuitive ways of being. No performance experience is required. Wear comfortable clothes you can move in.
