From ancient myths to Pixar films, from conversations with doctors to Superbowl commercials, we understand and shape our world through story. This course teaches students the principles of dramatic storytelling through theatrical improvisation and critical analysis of plays and films that deal with the themes of power and resistance. The course is both analytical and creative. You will learn how artists structure dramatic stories to impact society while writing and performing your own stories for the class.

In this course, students will examine many of the traditions that inform contemporary understandings of theatre, including Greek tragedy, commedia dell’arte, Japanese Noh, Sanskrit drama, Realism, Brechtian theatre, and the Theatre of the Oppressed. Students will also study the history of theatre in the United States by examining blackface minstrel performance, African American drama, and the role of theatre in the social movements of the twentieth century. Class sessions will combine lecture, discussion, embodied exercises, and performance of historical texts.
