Special Topics in Theater History, Theory, and Aesthetics|
By examining key moments in theater history from the late 19th century to the recent past, the course explores the active relationship between theoretical thought and aesthetic innovation on stage. We reconstruct these moments by relying on a variety of documents and media, including but not limited to: theater on film, play texts, documentaries, scholarly articles, manifestos, and reviews. The course highlights the ways in which such ground-breaking works represent dynamic, diverse, and cumulative ruptures with the mainstream, and ultimately shape how we see and create theater today.
