In this lecture, playwright José Teodoro discusses finding inspiration in varied storytelling forms and offers a broader sense of what art can do. The value of cultivating knowledge in your chosen artistic discipline is self-evident. To ignore the history and techniques of other disciplines, however, is to deny a great source of dynamism and innovation. By focusing on storytelling in cinema, literature and theatre, you will explore the myriad ways that artists glean inspiration from varied forms. Surveying artists such as Ingmar Bergman, Maggie Nelson, David Lynch, Ian Williams, and others, you’ll examine how curiosity and critical thinking merge in the creation of memorable works of art.
