Theatre: Theory & Practicum
This course is conceived as a linguistic and cultural experience, to expose students to the nature of drama, and to acquaint them with selections from Hispanic dramatic literature. After a preliminary consideration of the theoretical and historical underpinnings of Hispanic theater, two practical stages will be followed. The first stage introduces the students to the basis of acting through dramatic readings, exercises in speech, and corporal expression. In the second stage, a play will be prepared and performed as a means of bringing together, in one project, all the work of the course. (1 unit)
This course is cross-listed: Culture & Civilization and Literature.
