The Interdisciplinary Performance minor offers Oberlin College and Conservatory students an opportunity to explore creativity in a broad range of performance practices. Students pursuing this minor can investigate the nature of performance across the arts. The areas of inquiry this minor illuminate include: the nature of the audience and performer interaction; dynamics among performers; the creative and political opportunities afforded by various kinds of stages (from page, to proscenium, to community, to playing field); the complex interplay of improvisation, inspiration, and practice; the relationship between mind and body.
Visit the Interdisciplinary Performance webpage for more information.
Students wishing to complete the Interdisciplinary Performance minor should consult with their academic advisor or one of the minor co-chairs and complete the Interdivisional or Arts & Sciences Minor form. The form requires the signature of one of the co-chairs.
