About the course:

In the 21st century, we all improvise identity and race. In this so-called “post-identity” era, improvisation is a metaphor for both how we construct our selves and the mode through which we create our selves. Throughout this 10-week course, we will explore how artists improvise identity through jazz music, modern dance, drag performance, contemporary art, race comedy, food, hip-hop theory, and freestyle.
