291A: Tps:TheatreCulture&Soc

Tps:Theatre Culture & Society

Critical analysis of the ways in which humans produce and re-produce culture through theatre. Live performances and historical performance descriptions are considered as texts to be "read" within cultural contexts, alongside mediated events, such as film, television, or novels. The course will consider the same narratives from different points of view, such as theatre, newspaper accounts, television, radio, film and fiction. Narratives to be considered from these different points of view include Faust stories, Antigone stories, and the real-life lynching of Leo Frank in 1915.
