We invite students from all member institutions of the Hemispheric Institute to apply. NYU students may take the course for 4 points of graduate credit through the Department of Performance Studies, and students from other institutions can take the course for credit as an independent study in their home universities. Students from non-member institutions will be considered for admission, though priority will be given to graduate students from member institutions.

NOTE: The course requires fluency in English. Knowledge of Spanish is a plus. Students are encouraged to bring laptops and digital cameras to use for their projects.

Lab fee*

A lab fee will apply to all—$1300* USD for students in the U.S., Canada, and Europe, and $400* USD for those in Latin America. The estimated cost for shared accomodations is $600-700 USD. All local course expenses (performances, lectures, travel to local sites, etc.), are covered by the lab fee.
