FC ARHU CD
4 credits
This course continues the inquiry begun in AAST/THEA 268 focusing on the Western Hemispheric inheritance from traditional African cultures. This course will focus on performance in sacred and secular cultures of the African diaspora in the mid- to late 20th century. The class will hone performance skills through in-class exercises and assignments, as well as hone intellectual and critical skills through reading, discussions, presentations, journals, and critical papers examining aesthetic and cultural performance theories. The course will culminate in a final performance.

Prerequisites: AAST/THEA 268 or other AAST fine arts classes taught by professors Coleman or Sharpley.
This course is cross-listed with THEA-368
