THEA 434 - Devised, Radical and Community-Based

4.00 credit hours
An exploration of three overlapping subfields in theatre and performance studies: devised theatre, radical theatre and community-based theatre. The course conceptually explores how community-based engagement necessitates radical theatre aesthetics that do not rely on traditionally authored plays. Students learn radical theatre aesthetics and techniques by examining case studies of groundbreaking companies and artists. Finally, students apply their theoretical comprehension of radical theatres by selecting a community and envisioning a radical theatre project to serve its needs.

Prerequisite(s): THEA 330 .
Cardinal Directions Designation(s): Arts, Ethical Dimensions, Community Engaged Learning.
