SPAN0309A-S14

Representing Hispanic Theatre

From Page to Stage: Representing Hispanic Theatre
In this course we will both study and perform a selected play from Spain or Latin America. The first half of the course will be dedicated to an in-depth analysis of the selected play. We will complement our study with readings on semiotics and performance studies, other works by the author, other plays, and texts on relevant socio-historical and political topics. The second half of the semester will be dedicated to preparing a full production of the play to be presented at the end of the semester. Students will be involved as actors as well as in all aspects of production and decision-making, requiring about three hours of rehearsal time per week outside of class. Through performance students will find deeper meaning in the literary text. (At least two courses at the 0300-level or above or by waiver; this course is also being offered as SPAN 0399) 3 hrs. lect./disc/rehearsal
