New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2020

FILM 49.02 Black Theatre & Storytelling Workshop in XR: Reimagining The Purple Flower (1928)

Recognizing the intrinsic value of Black lives and Black storytelling across media platforms, this course will explore the staging of Black theatre texts in virtual reality (VR) and related XR technology.  Participants will explore VR technology at the intersection of Black cultural storytelling through the performance of monologues and scenes as well as design/tech, music and movement culminating into a pilot production of Marita Bonner’s The Purple Flower (1928), a non-realistic, one-act play that pushes the boundaries of theatrical staging.  No prior experience or pre-requisites required.

The Timetable of Class Meetings contains the most up-to-date information about a course. It includes not only the meeting time and instructor, but also its official distributive and/or world culture designation. This information supersedes any information you may see elsewhere, to include what may appear in this ORC/Catalog or on a department/program website. Note that course attributes may change term to term therefore those in effect are those (only) during the term in which you enroll in the course.
