TH328 – Theatre and the Politics of Action

The course is a contemplation of theatre as a voice of the dispossessed and oppressed, focusing on the development of various performance aesthetics as a response to sociopolitical subjugation. The course will utilize both national and international performances and texts. Special attention will be paid to Brecht/s epic theatre as a laboratory of socioeconomic inequality, Boal’s concept of theatre as an agitprop tool, and Wilson’s notions of social boundaries, expressionism, and the ethical territories of the dispossessed. 1 unit.
