Latinx Theater in the U.S.: Analysis & Performance
THEA 215
Fall 2021
Section: 01  

This Latinx theater study and performance class will examine American-born playwrights of the Latinx Diaspora. Playwrights who are of Mexican, Cuban, Puerto Rican, and Dominican descent are just a few of the many Latinx identities in the United States. The goal will be to examine the specific cultural identities within the United States, their origins, experiences, and stories in this country. We will analyze and explore the universal resonance of these plays as well as their current relevance to contemporary American culture, both politically and socially. Students will be required to do monologue work and scene study for the performance portion of this course.
