THEA 321, ENGL 321|
This is a writing course for students interested in the study and practice of translating and adapting texts for performance from a variety of source materials. Students will initially analyze theatrical adaptations of Asian epic sources (RAMAYANA, MAHABHRATA, SIWARATRIKALPA) into a variety of Indonesian theatrical forms (shadow puppets, masked drama, etc.). These Indonesian translation/adaptations incorporate current events like terrorism and political issues into the classic texts. (Other modern writers of adaptations like the political satirist and Nobel Laureate Dario Fo will also be studied as masters of the art of adaptation.) Students will then write their own translation/adaptations of these classic texts.
