    Credits: 30.0
    Overlap: None
    Prerequisite: None
    This module is about things you can do on stage without acting. Since the 1960s, among many serious attempts to reinvigorate the work of the performer, some artists have tried to avoid acting altogether. This module will explore how we might make theatre out of such behaviour: task-based activities, durational work, working from audio and video feeds, building systems and making mistakes, using transcripts, following stage directions to the letter, doing nothing, flirting and listening to music.
