APTH 318 - Acting: Postmodernism and Devising


2 credit(s)
The creation of compelling theatre, especially in the late twentieth- and early twenty-first-centuries, is not always driven by a prescriptive text or the vision of a director.  Instead, shows may be generated by artists who approach a text as a prompt to deconstruct, problematize, and illuminate. This class will employ performance tools to stage open-ended performance texts (such as those by Caryl Churchill and Gertrude Stein), found texts, and classic plays. Students will also gain practice in starting from a non-text source (such as a question or community issue) as a form of Applied Theatre. Each iteration of the course will focus on new materials and skill sets. May be repeated for credit.
Prerequisite(s): THEA 110
