The concepts of play and ritual, symbolic inversion, remembrance, otherness and mask play were the under-currents that connected the exploration of the performing body in spectacle and the ritualized space of the urban theater of Carnival. The class culminated in series of creative collaborations with selected community Carnival contingents, designing and fabricating performance objects and spectacle-scale works.
