What happens when sculpture meets live performance? Students in Design Thinking Studio: Performative Sculpture explored this question through the design and fabrication of body modifications based on themes explored from personal life experience. Together with professional choreographer Molly Gawler, Colby faculty Bradley Borthwick (Art) and Jim Thurston (Theater and Dance) worked with Brit Biddle ’19, Dominic Malia ’21, and Chang Zhang ’20 to create body-specific sculptures and solo performance works. Each student designed all lighting and atmospheric effects for a classmate’s technical production and final stage expression. Cosponsored by the Departments of Art and Theater and Dance.
