An event every day that begins at 7:30 pm, repeating until December 2, 2021
Written by Toshi Reagon and COMM 655 students
December 1st-2nd @ 7:30 p.m. – Swain Hall Black Box Theater
COMM 665 is an arts-based inquiry into the ways in which performance and theatricality structure contemporary politics, culture, and everyday life, as well as the ways in which artists utilize performance as a mode of political engagement. This course, now in its third year of a multi-year collaboration, is taught by Department of Communication Professors Renée Alexander Craft and Joseph Megel in collaboration with international musician, artist, and Andrew W. Mellon Creative Futures Fellow Toshi Reagon.
About the Process Series
Dedicated to the development of new and significant works in the performing arts, The Process Series features professionally mounted, developmental presentations of new works in progress. The mission of the Series is to illuminate the ways in which artistic ideas take form, to examine the creative process, to offer audiences the opportunity to follow artists and performers as they explore and discover, and by so doing to enrich the development process for artists with the ultimate goal of better art and a closer relationship between artists and audiences. Immediately following each performance, we ask our audiences to join in the creative process, providing feedback critical to the development of the work as it moves forward. All performances are free and open to the public, with a suggested donation of $10. The Series has supported over sixty
artist residencies since its inception, with many of the projects going on to significant future lives both nationally and internationally. The Process Series, housed in the Department of Communication, celebrates renewed partnerships with Dramatic Art, Carolina Performing Arts, and Institute for Arts and Humanities. Along with the College of Arts and Sciences and sponsoring departments from Art and Art History, English and Comparative Literature, Music, American Studies and Earth, Marine and Environmental Science, we are working to develop new works that underscore the connections among the arts, humanities, and the sciences.
