THEA 325 - Advanced scene study: Non-traditional Approaches to Classic Texts

FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This is an advanced acting class that uses canonized playwrights such as Shakespeare, Sophocles, and Chekov to allow students to explore the history, process, and implications of re-casting roles in regards to race and gender. In class we will read, rehearse, and perform scenes. Special attention will be paid to identifying actions while embracing heightened language, as well as discussing the implications of incorporating race and gender into the construction of character within the world of any given text. Though Acting 100 and 200 are recommended, students may receive consent by emailing the professor their interest and background.
Prerequisites & Notes: THEA 100/200.
