This course seeks to provide a practical understanding of the human voice, its anatomy, functioning and the underlying support mechanisms of body and breath. Using techniques rooted in the work of Berry, Linklater and Rodenburg, the course will explore the development of physical balance and ease and the awareness of the connection between thinking and breathing that will lead to the effortless, powerful and healthy use of the voice in public presentations and in dramatic performance.

THEA 255.00 August Wilson: History and the Blues 6 credits

Open: Size: 25, Registered: 12, Waitlist: 0

Weitz Center 133

Synonym: 63935

David E Wiles

This course will explore the ten plays that comprise August Wilson's "Century Cycle." Wilson wrote one play for each decade of the twentieth century, exploring the movement of African-Americans, in critic John Lahr's words, "from property to personhood." Wilson's work, inspired by the Black Arts movement of the 1960's-70's is rooted musically in the Blues, the African American musical form at the root of modern American popular music. We will read these plays, informed by the Blues, against the major historical events in African-American life during each of the decades they represent.
