THEATER 000 – Harvard University
Theater 000 is a studio course based on the fundamentals of performance and theatricality. The focus of this class is creative and was designed to build students’ confidence and personal language in devising live and online narrative performance. Our goal was to create portable works that were structurally and formally stimulating, emotionally resonant, and socially valuable. We did this through mini-performances projects that built flexibility, courage, and voice; through readings, viewings, and discussions; and through personal writing and research. Throughout the semester, there was an emphasis on self-care, self-inquiry, and supportive feedback.
The students in this class had a great willingness to experiment, be vulnerable, and explore different aspects of themselves. Below are clips of some character explorations by Kristian Hardy, Isaac Heller, Samantha Wilhoit, and Jill Sharples.
