J-Term Course: Stubborn Light
"What is to give light must endure burning." — Victor Frankl.
An off-campus, Decorah based course. Students will travel to various locations for informal discussions, culminating in their creation of a performance work. Preparing and eating meals together, along with practices in the bodily arts, will be part of the discussion/creation series. The course promises to encourage honesty of reflection; spirit; compassion; truthfulness; a shaking-up of our comfortable world view; looking at life from a different perspective; and to obey little and resist much.
