CHRIST UNIVERSITYBangalore-29BACHELORS IN PERFORMING ARTSCOURSE DESCRIPTIONThe Bachelors in PerformingArts is envisioned for students who have a flair for dance/music/theatreand are looking for structured intervention at the UG level. The course hopes to give a strong platform for ourstudents to develop a passion for the Arts, sharpen their artistic skills and broaden their theoretical base.The course attempts to transcend the definition of art across content and context while reaching out toindividuals and communities. While the focus will be predominantly within the parameters of dance, music andtheatre, other art forms would act as subsidiaries under this three-dimensional approach.The primary aim of the course is not to make students experts in one art form or the other, but introducethem to the possibilities with art and to help them get an integrated sense of art. It is desirable that every studentcontinues to work under an artist/group in one art form or the other outside the curriculum, toward long termdevelopment.As of now, the PerformingArts papers will function in tandem with papers from English andPsychology as it is part of a triple major package. The combination will hopefully give linguistic, literary andpsychological insights to the students.Since there is scope for accommodating only one paper from the field in each of the first four semesters,the second year is conceptualised in a form where the students can start specialising in the art form of theirchoice. From second year on, the students can select their area of specialisation, through the elective option.However, they need to stick on to the same specialized area, till the last semester. In the third year, they shallhave two papers per semester in their specialised area as it could help them have a hard core engagement. Andthere will be a rich pool of experts from the field who give training, guidance and opportunities for the students.OBJECTIVESTo address a spectrum of art concernsTo give a base in dance, music and theatreTo stimulate a composite sense of artTo foster a blend of practical and theoretical understanding and practice in the artsTo enable identification and growth opportunities in chosen field of dance/music/theatreSyllabus 20122
