Sources and Adaptations

This course thinks dramaturgically about translated theatre texts and the aesthetic and cultural conversations created by adaptation of existing narratives into other genres and mediums. With reading from contemporary adaptation theory and dramaturgical scholarship framing case studies of plays, students consider the modes of "telling, showing, and interacting" created by different combinations of sources and their adaptations, culminating in individualized student research projects about a specific adaptation of an existing artwork into theatrical production. Affiliate department: Theatre Arts.
