This class is an introductory exploration of performance and of drama as a theory and practice. Students learn the fundamentals of performance, including performance outside of the theatre, how performance can incite dialogue which may inspire sociopolitical change and investigate how ideologies affect, race, gender, sexuality, class, technology and citizenship are articulated. These goals will be approached through a survey of scholarship, performances, and application activities.
