World Theatre III: Voices of the Americas

Through the lens of tradition and innovation, students explore the dramaturgy of plays from throughout the Americas - analyzing dramatic texts, watching videos/films, rehearsing scenes, and engaging in research. Students also, as possible, attend live performances and participate in sessions with guest artists or scholars. This class develops and deepens skills in dramaturgy and theatre making, as well as close reading, writing and research. Taught in rotation with World Theatre I: African Diaspora and World Theatre II: Asian Theatres.
