Advanced Collaboration with the members of Bamsemble
PATH-303 Advance Collaboration's goal is to apply skills and heuristics particular to the student’s emphasis (dance, music or theatre) to collaborative performance projects. In addition, to create and combine original or adapted works of performing, visual, or literary arts into collaborative performances with students in other emphases.
Under the direction of Dr. Catherine Scott Burriss, the students of PATH-303 Advanced Collaboration present “True Colors”, an original piece written by London White. This performance will incorporate various performance styles taught by members of the Italian theatre group Bamsemble. Our performance will demonstrate how metamorphosis affects our emotions and the way we approach our everyday life.
True Colors performance came together when our class began discussing the struggles we, and
most students, face with our identity and self-worth. It’s easy to feel like you’re
not enough in a society with unreasonable expectations. Rather than focusing on who WE
want to be, we tend to get caught up in how our peers and society view us.
Instead of morphing into ourselves, we become a mold sculpted by societal standard's expectations.
Using the performance, we hope to portray that change not only happens over a long period of time but is really happening all of the time, and can happen in any time frame. Change happens internally, even though someone can't witness it, it's happening, throughout the days of the week, even if you wouldn't be able to see the difference on the outside. We now ask you to question, which day will you be tomorrow?
