Students will explore the politics and pleasures involved in performance practices that provoke, argue, or advocate for social change. This course maintains that performance is used to intervene in a variety of social, political and environmental contexts, which may include the street, commercial centres, health or social care systems, educational institutions, online and virtual environments and so on.
