New Undergraduate Course Supplement 2020


THEA 10.90 Contemporary Theater and Performance

This course explores the world of contemporary theater and performance. Readings of plays, performance texts, and articles are paired with viewings of recorded, live, and virtual work. Collaborative projects revolve around scene work and devised theater. Students will develop an appreciation for the breadth of new and recent national and international performance. All of this work is theatrical, but none of it is traditional theater. Topics include devised theater, virtual performance, theater as activism and social practice, eco-performance, movement performance, and interactive work that centers the spectator's experience. Open to all classes; this course is required for class of 2021 senior theater majors.

Dist:ART

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.
