Theater in Contemp. Culture

Gresham G

 Common Curriculum: Humanities/Arts Modern


This course will examine the basic principles of theatre with emphasis on contemporary cultural context in performance. Focus is on developing critical skills needed to analyze theatrical productions and form a deeper appreciation of the theatrical process as it relates to the creative process for actors, directors, and designers. Off-campus visits to theatre and other venues will provide opportunities to discuss what we observe and relate developments in theatre practice to other forms of cultural representation of the present both regionally and globally.
