COMM-4223 Performance Conventions: Experimental Theatre
Students will explore the significance and practice of twentieth-century avant-garde movements and experimental staging through performance, reading and critical dialogue. The course will study works and theatre artists outside the conventional Western canon and adopt the ethos and practice of these performance theories in several student generated works. Special attention will be given to integrating experimental practices into student directed projects and using theatre as a means for achieving social justice. This course is normally offered in the spring semester of every other odd numbered year.
