Making the Pitch

The second week of The Audio Essay started out on a note of high anxiety for me; we all made a professional story pitch. Over the weekend, our assignment was to create a formal pitch for a personal essay to debut on a radio program. Theoretically, if our pitch did well in class, it was […]

The Art of Insurgency Final Projects

Dobar dan! (Good afternoon!) Two days ago I experienced one of the most epic days I have yet to experience at CC. John Gould (one of our professors) even said that it was one of his favorite days at CC, and he’s been here a lot longer than I have! Our final performances took place […]

Jet Lag as an Act of Insurgent Art

For the first time since starting to provide words for Colorado College’s blog, I am going to relate the content of the post to the title: on Tuesday our class will be presenting our final performances for the block… jet lagged. We have safely arrived back in the United States of America as of about […]

Stories from Serbia Pt. 2

Dah Teatar, the theatre group we are working with, did a site-specific performance there commemorating this. […]

Crazy Adventures (And We Aren’t Even Abroad Yet): Part Two

Hey again! We presented our second round of group performances today. The assignment this time was to do a site-specific performance with a strong intention, one that would “intervene with social order, perhaps even political space.” My group realized that two of our members, Anya and I, both had experience figure skating. We designed a […]

Crazy Adventures (And We Aren’t Even Abroad Yet): Part One

Hello friends, This week has been wild. To start with, we’ve been learning about an incredible number and variety of performance artists over the past few days, which I’ve found exhilarating and so, so inspiring. We’ve also been doing a lot of performances ourselves! I, for one, started off the week right by getting married […]
