Performance in Tyumen

This class will devise and perform a novel spectacle about human ecology and the near future of the Tyumen bioregion.

We will study aspects of Tyumen’s geography, ecology, economy, history, current events, and bioregion. The main focus of the course will be developing student performance skills. The final spectacle will be publically performed.
