THTR 475

Contemporary Theatre, Theory, and Performance

Through studies in the dramaturgy of contemporary theatre, students explore how, why, when and where theatre has been made from the 1960s to the present. In addition to the emphasis on dramaturgy, literature, and history central to THTR 371 and 373, students explore in this class the relevance of contemporary critical theory to the theatre maker. This course asks students as writers, thinkers, and theatre makers to bring what they have learned in prior course work to a next level of seriousness and sophistication.

Prerequisites: THTR 371 and 373 or permission of the instructor.
