FREN 450 - Sujets contemporains: Théâtres révolutionnaires (1896-1968)

3 HU, CD
First Semester. This course is a study of the changing role(s) of theater in the modern age.  To guide our reflections on theater’s place in society and to provide a sense of cultural and historical relativity, we will study the major moments, movements, and masterminds behind modern French theater as both an art form and an institution.  Readings will include historical documents, theoretical works, and a selection of plays from the 1890s through May ‘68 by artists such as Jarry, Rachilde, Artaud, Camus, Genet, Beckett, Duras, and Mnouchkine.
