Performing Heightened Text
THEA 319
Spring 2009
Section: 01  

This course will be an intensive and active investigation of a variety of plays that call for a heightened, nonnaturalistic acting approach. Beginning with monologues and scene studies and culminating in a group performance, students will examine the physical, vocal, and analytical demands of performing the works of writers who have explored and expanded form and language. The working texts will be drawn from a wide range of playwrights, including Sophocles, Shakespeare, Marlowe, Aphra Behn, Molière, Sophie Treadwell, Beckett, Ionesco, Harold Pinter, Sarah Kane, and Suzan-Lori Parks.
