Performing Brazil: The Postdictatorship Generation
THEA 340
Spring 2019 not offered
Crosslisting: LAST 340, FIST 340

The course takes as its point of departure a close and critical reading of modernist Oswald de Andrade's "Cannibalist Manifesto" (1928) and the writings of artists working during and after the dictatorship years. As the semester progresses, the course will examine postdictatorship works in film, music, literature, the fine arts, dance, and theater. Students will have access to examples in the form of texts in translation, images, and performance recordings. Discussions will focus on the relationship between Brazil's postcolonial condition and political history, including the country's current artistic production and sense of national identity.
