|(3 cr.) Students investigate the potential for theater and
performance to be catalysts for social change. The
class explores how theater has been an effective
site for cultural and political interventions.
Moving from theory to practice in the staging of a
socially-resonant piece of theater, students
explore the ways in which theater may be used to
articulate community conflict and to facilitate
dialogue, and also examine the practical and
ethical issues confronted by those who engage in
theater for social change. This course is
repeatable for credit.
