KanezaSchaalIn anticipation of her work with TDM students in the spring--as both a Visiting Lecturer and Guest Artist--Kaneza Schaal offers two Master Classes to the Harvard community this fall. In this first Master Class, Kaneza Schaal approaches the Egyptian Book of the Dead as an ancient performance score: excavating the spells and incantations to create a series of burial vignettes, fragments of translation, memory and imagination. Schaal will then lead participants to texts of their own choosing, finding strategies for performance that spring from each text. Free and open to the public (tickets required).
