THE 3215 - Introduction to Black Theatre II

Credits: 3

Prerequisite(s): THE 3214 or permission of department

Description: This course is part of a two-semester course sequence addressing the evolution of Black Theatre in the United States. Students gain an understanding of the importance of image as it relates to the creation, production, and function of Black Theatre through the years. Students study and interpret plays from the 1960's through the end of the twentieth century. Students also study the work as an artform, as well as the historical origins and social, cultural, and political ramifications. Analysis and exploration will juxtapose the realities of mainstream theater and culture with the solidification of Black Theatre as a field. This exploration culminates with in-class performances of student directed scenes.
