DRAM 223 - The Visual Texts

Explores the necessary components needed to “set the stage” in performance-based productions. Topics include costumes, scenery, movement, lighting, and sound. The subject’s roots are found in the French expression, “Mise en Scène”, and it has been used as a means for evaluation of film, but its origins are in theatre. Ideas of composition and design are explored in regards to photography, film, dance, concerts, and drama. In addition, the exploration of how a story may be told or supported through visual means will be addressed. Open to all majors. See department chair.
