THR 385 - Theater and Society Now

As an art form, theater operates in the shared space and time of the present moment while also manifesting imagined worlds untethered by the limits of "real" life. In this course, we undertake a critical, creative and historical survey of the ways contemporary theater-making in the United States - as both industry and creative practice - does (and does not) engage the most urgent concerns of contemporary American society. For the Spring 2021 offering of this course, we will emphasize how theater-makers in the United States have responded to the many, unanticipated and unprecedented challenges of 2021. Most weeks, members of the course will convene for a synchronously for two hours, with the third class hour dedicated variously to synchronous and asynchronous practicum exercises. The course will be supplemented with a robust ongoing practice of virtual theater-going. Varies. At minimum, 30-50 pages to read a week, plus weekly individual research reading. Weekly screening and/or listening sessions, with occasional virtual field trips, workshops with guest artists, and performances as required. Regular short writing assignments throughout the semester, with a collaborative public work demo and a final project portfolio.
