This course invites students to begin what is hoped will be a lifelong relationship with live theatre. To that end, the instructor will combine lectures on the cultural and political context of landmark plays with opportunities for small group discussions. Slides, video segments and recordings will be incorporated into the lectures and discussions. In-class writing (short, timed, freewriting sessions in response to catalyst questions ) will offer students a chance to widen the application of lecture concepts and vocabulary in a personal, critical way. Attendance at live theatre performances will be a vital component of the course. Students will be encouraged to consider how historical theatrical knowledge can be utilized in real, self-directed, creative theatre projects.
