THEA 204 - Comedy and Social Change

Description
In this course, we introduce students to how various comic styles can influence and transform society. In the class we study scripted as well as unscripted forms of performance such as commedia dell?arte, vaudeville, Teatro Campesino style actos, stand-up, sketch comedy, sitcoms, and faux news shows. Students develop an understanding of the role of comedy in socio-political critique through research and through the creation of original solo and group performances, culminating in a final cabaret performance. Not open to frosh.
