Xulgaria: Music, Theatre and Contemporary Ritual Practice

MUS 348/THR 378

Info tab content
This class will mount a developmental performance of the musical story-work "Xulgaria" inside an intensive ensemble setting. We will research classic Greek choruses and the Eleusinian Mystery rites and explore diaphonic singing. We will use multidisciplinary practices- theatre, experimental movement, symbol-making and more- to explore global mythologies of the "underworld" and devise performance and ritual that can provide a community container for discussing issues around mental health and healing. Performance experience is not required. All who are interested are encouraged to apply, as well as singers, instrumentalists and creatives.
