Contemporary Theater: Theories and Aesthetics|
Fall 2016 not offered
|Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory|
By examining key moments in Western theater history, the course explores the active relationship between theoretical thought and aesthetic innovation on stage. We reconstruct these moments by relying on a variety of documents and media, including, but not limited to, theater on film, play texts, documentaries, scholarly articles, manifestos, and reviews. The course highlights the ways in which such groundbreaking works represent dynamic, diverse, and cumulative ruptures with the mainstream and ultimately shape how we see and create theater today.
