French and Francophone Theater in Performance

FREN 281
Fall 2019 not offered
This course may be repeated for credit.
Crosslisting: THEA 291
Certificates: African Studies Minor
Course Cluster: African Studies, African Studies Minor

This course introduces students to the richness of the French and Francophone dramatic repertories, on the one hand, and, on the other, invites them to discover acting techniques (such as movement, physicalization, memorization, mise en scène, and so forth). Students will thus put their language skills into motion, and the course will culminate in a public performance at the end of the semester. (Special accommodations will be made for students who do not wish to perform publicly). Taught exclusively in French, the course will place particular emphasis on the improvement of students' oral skills through pronunciation and diction exercises, all the while polishing their written expression and enhancing their aural comprehension.
