Ambience: An Intro to Glove Lightshows
About the Course:
"Ambience: An Intro to Glove Lightshows" is the first and only student-run university course on the new art form known as Gloving. First established at UC Berkeley in Fall 2011, the course offers students an understanding of fundamental lightshow techniques ranging from basics to more advanced and innovative moves. Students will also be introduced to a broad range of history covering multiple aspects of Gloving and the influence other dances had in its creation. Instruction will focus primarily on collaborative learning as well as some lecture/discussion.
In order to fully appreciate the material learned in this course, students will be required to purchase their own glove sets online. The facilitators will provide information on which websites are recommended for buying such products in the first lecture. Aside from participation, there will be short, weekly assignments as well as a group project and final distributed throughout the course. The weekly assignments will be a very brief paragraph on an assigned topic regarding that week’s lecture material or reading assignment. The group project will consist of pairs of two people each performing Double Lightshows. The final will constitute a written exam based on lectures as well as a Lightshow performance that will fully test the knowledge and skills you have acquired throughout the semester. Students will be allowed no more than two unexcused absences.
Weekly Assignments: 20%
Group Project 20%
Passing Grade = 70% or higher
