1. Between May 19 and 31, 2012 five students from the University College Drama Program (since July 1, 2012 Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies) were participating in an international research trip to Berlin.

    This trip served as an integrated study module for the practice-based performance history and theory course “MONTAGE COLLAGE FRAGMENTATION. Performing in the age of globalization and digital reproduction – Tracing Benjamin’s Aura in Berlin”.

    This undergraduate course was conceptualized by professors Antje Budde and Nikki Cesare-Schotzko as part of the Faculty of Arts and Science’s sponsored Independent Experiential Study Program (398/399Y) 2012 at the University of Toronto, organized by the university’s Centre for International Experience. Furthermore, the University College Drama Program provided participating students with individual scholarships.

  2. Jennie Egerdy – who talks in this clip - has been part of our course project from the beginning. She finds herself in a beTwEeen space as a VIRTUAL traveller because she could only join the other five students on their trip to Berlin via SKYPE. While staying in Toronto she put time and energy in creating the course blog for us. Go here:

  4. On Nov.30, 2012 Heather Carlson, Jennie Egerdy, Emma Viola Robinson, Max Toulch, Danielle Ferrier and Elisabeth Laywine came together for a rehearsal/ installation set-up in the Leonard Common Room (LCR) situated in the basement of Morrison Hall at 75 St. George Street, Toronto. This was in preparation of a two hours performance-installation project the following day that was open to audiences related to the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies at the University of Toronto.

    This performance project was part of students’ course work in the practice-based performance history and theory course “MONTAGE COLLAGE FRAGMENTATION. Performing in the age of globalization and digital reproduction – Tracing Benjamin’s Aura in Berlin”.

    For this project each student developed a proposal for individual or group projects. The main framework was the idea of the airport as a strong symbol for transitory places/spaces. Within this space people meet, move, communicate, create memory using multiple media (including their brains), and get searched, detained, returned, violated.

    Students worked with their own experiences, memories and ideas both inspired by Walter Benjamin readings and based on their research activities in Berlin and Toronto.

    Between June-November 2012 all six students of the course engaged in academic and artistic explorations of Benjamin’s work in comparison to their experiences in Berlin and Toronto.
