TH 453 - Critical Perspectives in Theatre 3


Min Units: 3
Max Units: 3
Through thoughtful exploration of key texts, students will be introduced to myriad theatrical traditions of the world. In order to understand the significance of the playwrights’ thematic and stylistic choices, we must understand the historical, cultural, and political context in which they wrote. To this end, we will critically engage with selected historical and contemporary analyses that illuminate key aspects of the works and the corresponding dramatic traditions. TH 453 will engage these perspectives with a special focus on the themes of dramatizing affect, performing “truth,” and staging the scientific. (U) Occasionally
Prerequisite(s): Theatre major or minor and junior status, or permission of the instructor
